WHO physical activity and sedentary behaviour guidelines updated

World Health Organisation guidelines have recently been updated

Did you know that the World Health Organisation has recently updated their physical activity and sedentary behaviour guidelines? As many children around the world are missing out on physical activity opportunities throughout the day due to the COVID-19 pandemic, now is a critical time to incorporate more movement into their day. The updated guidelines encourage children to engage in an average of 60 minutes of physical activity per day across a whole week and limit the amount of time being sedentary. For the first time the guidelines also include physical activity recommendations for children of all abilities.
