So how can you help improve the fitness of your kids?

  • Role model physical activity – show your kids you exercise regularly and that it’s important
  • Participate in physical activity as a family activity – go for a bike ride , kick the footy in the park or walk together
  • Encourage your kids to get involved in school sporting teams
  • Let your kids hear you talk about the importance of ‘being healthy’ and use this to explain lifestyle choices your family makes
  • Set a limit for ‘screen’ time – minimise the amount of time they spend sitting
