Remember: safety first
If your family doesn’t do much activity at the moment, start slow and build over time.
Children should wear suitable foot wear such as well fitted sandals or joggers, especially for outdoor activity. Thongs do not provide enough support for feet.
No matter the season or weather, it’s always important to be sun safe and stay hydrated.
The Australian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines are relevant to all apparently healthy children and young people. The known health benefits of being physically active outweigh the potential risks. If in doubt, or if your child experiences pain when they exercise, see your doctor.
