e-news Keep Kids Active in 2019!

Encouraging kids and teens to be active from a young age sets good habits early on and helps them develop the skills they need to stay active throughout their lives.

WHY Being Active is important:

  • with healthy growth and development
  • build strong bones and muscles
  • improve balance and develop skills
  • maintain and develop flexibility
  • improve cardiovascular fitness
  • improve posture
  • boost confidence and self-esteem
  • have fun with their friends and make new ones

HOW Parents can help:

  1. Be a good role model and have a positive attitude to being active. If your children see you enjoying physical activity and having fun, it can motivate them to participate.
  2. Encourage them to play in the backyard, dance to music, ride a bike or get involved in vigorous activities like running, swimming or playing sports like soccer, netball or basketball.
  3. Make sure kids and teens have an opportunity to be active after school, either through active play or organised sport, HI REPS ACTIVE KIDS .
  4. Encourage kids and teens to try different sports or activities so they can find one or more that they really enjoy and want to continue with.
  5. Make sure they drink plenty of water when they are physically active or playing sports.
  6. An active lifestyle is fuelled by healthy foods – make sure your children make healthy food and drink choices and limit foods that are high in added sugar, salt and saturated fat.
