Being active is important for babies and young children to grow healthy, and sets good habits for life. Read about how much activity small children should do each day, limiting sitting time, avoiding screens, and making sure they get enough sleep.

Babies (birth to 1 year)
  • Encourage your baby to have time on the mat or the floor in a safe environment and supervised
  • Tummy time is very important to help strengthen your baby’s muscles to help with their general development.
  • Encourage activities on the floor so your baby starts to reach for things, tries to hold onto toys, pushes and pulls
Toddlers (1 to 2 years of age)
  • Try to spend at least 50% of your child’s awake time being active, these might be walking, pushing a toy, running, jumping, twirling, bouncing. Avoid prolonged periods being stationary, in the pram, high chair etc.
