School age children need 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day. This may seem like a lot but the 60 minutes can also be broken up into different segments.
Activities should be primarily fun for your children.
Vary activities to keep your kids interested.
If your kids have not been active prior to now, start with 20 to 30 minutes a day and increase the routine by 5 minutes a week to avoid injury.
Reduce sedentary activities like excessive television watching, video and computer games, and telephone conversations to less than two hours per day.
Activity ideas depend upon age...
6 to 9 years: game activities such as tag and hopscotch
10 to 14 year-olds: individualized activities like swimming or ballet, or organized sports such as baseball or basketball
15 to 18 year-olds: physical activities become more structured like weight lifting, road race running, and other competitive activities
