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.


  • Kids aged five and over should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than two hours per day.

  • Try to limit the time your kids spend sitting or lying down. To get the kids moving more, get the kids to move in the ad breaks of their favourite TV show.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Regular physical activity helps to strengthen your bones.

  • Next time you and the kids are heading out for a walk, why not see if your neighbour would like to join you?
