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.

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • Doing physical activity as a family helps you all to stick to your new routine - it's much more fun being active together!

  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • Increase the intensity and length of your physical activity sessions gradually. If you go too hard too fast, you'll just burn yourself out and stop altogether.
