How often should kids exercise?

Check out this article from the Everybody Live to 100 website.  It's about the amount of exercise that kids should have each day; giving details on the physical, social, mental and longer term benefits.

Here are four key guidelines:
  • do 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity throughout each day
  • be active in as many ways as possible; for example, through play, cultural activities, dance, sport and recreation, jobs, and going from place to place
  • be active with friends and whanau, at home, school and in the community
  • spend less than 2 hours a day (out of school time) in front of television, computers and game consoles.
