Infants (aged less than 1 year) should be physically active several times daily - particularly
through interactive floor-based play.
Toddlers (aged 1-2 years) and preschoolers (aged 3-4 years) should accumulate at least
180 minutes of physical activity at any intensity spread throughout the day, including:
- A variety of activities in different environments;
- Activities that develop movement skills;
- Progression toward at least 60 minutes of energetic play by 5 years of age.
More daily physical activity provides greater benefits.
