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 some backyard cricket, soccer or basketball - not only will your kids have fun, it will help everyone sleep better and give you more energy tomorrow.

  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.

  • With younger kids, call being active 'play time' and encourage activities that are fun as well as physical such as hop-scotch, skipping, tips/tag or hide-and-go-seek.

  • A great way to get the family moving together - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - is to play a game of tag together. For more game ideas, check out our downloadable Resources.
