Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Get the kids involved in the garden. They can help with tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles.

  • By limiting the time you spend sitting or lying down you can help reduce your risk of some cancers and prevent unhealthy weight gain.

  • You and your little ones can have great fun playing with simple household items like boxes, pots, pans and hoops to encourage reaching, stretching, crawling and moving. Put your stray plastic lids or containers into a bottom drawer for them to play with!

  • Once you've started and you're being active on a regular basis, you'll find it gets easier.

  • Encourage your kids to grow strong bones and muscles by getting them to skip, hop, run and jump.
