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.


  • Make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Try not to overload your family with too much physical activity too quickly, or your kids may come to dislike being active. If they enjoy themselves (and see you're having fun too), it's more likely being active will become a natural part of their routine.

  • Get your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • If you're getting active for the first time or just starting out and feel a little nervous, trying new activities together as a family is a great way to help support you and overcome any fears.
