How Much Physical Activity Do Kids Need?

WHY ACTIVITY IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL PERFORMANCE


Kiddos should be active for at least 60 minutes each day. This amount of activity offers many health benefits to your kid as well as benefits in the classroom! Kids who are more active have better concentration and focus during the school day, activity can also improve your child’s behavior in class and boost their performance at school. It is important for schools to incorporate activity and health education in the curriculum to establish healthy habits, but it is also important that we teach our kids these habits at home as well! Consistency is key! So encourage your kids to be active with you and at recess!
