Being active every day is important in childhood and can lay the foundations for a healthy and active life. While the benefits of an active lifestyle are compelling, getting children to move more and sit less is complex.
Active for Life is an evidence-based resource to help better understand the challenges around children’s physical activity, and inspire better practice to integrate more movement in children’s daily lives.
Combining Australian and international research findings, Active for Life is a valuable resource for decision makers that aims to challenge current thinking and inspire innovative approaches.
