Evaluate Your Child's Physical Activity
Talk to your child’s physical education teacher and see how much PE they receive weekly.
Find out how much recess your child receives daily. Talk to your child about what they do at recess and see if they are moving during that allotted time.
Account for any other physical activity your child has that is within the routine of the school day including before and after-school programs.
Add up the physical activity minutes your child has daily from their school day. The very minimum should be 60 minutes daily, 300 minutes in a school week, 420 minutes weekly.
Keep in mind that all physical activity is welcomed, the majority of the 60 minutes of physical activity should be at moderate to vigorous levels.
Interact with your child and learn what sports and/or activities they may be interested in and find a way to pursue those interests.
