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

  • Make physical activity part of your family's routine. The more regular your efforts in keeping active, the more likely you are to stick to your new healthy active lifestyle.

  • Try to limit how much time you and your family spend sitting down during the day. Get moving and play a fun game instead - plenty of ideas can be found in our Resources.

  • 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?

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