Get Your Kids Moving!

ParticipAction is out with its annual report card on physical activity for children and youth —  it finds that, overall, Canadian kids still aren’t moving enough.

Kids get a score of D-Plus for overall physical activity, up slightly from D-Minus in 2016.

The report says only 35% of 5 to 17 year olds get the exercise they need.

For the first time, the report links youth brain health to regular exercise.

It includes a statement from a team of pediatric neuroscientists and practitioners that regular physical activity can foster better cognition, brain function and mental health.

The report says kids with autism, A-D-H-D and other brain-based conditions stand to gain the most from boosting physical activity.
