Physical Activity Guidelines for Young People
Physical Activity Guidelines for Young People is a NHS Choices information page. To stay healthy or to improve health, young people need to do three types of physical activity each week: aerobic, muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening activity.
The amount of physical activity you need to do each week is determined by your age.
Children and young people should minimise the amount of time they spend:
- sitting watching TV;
- playing computer games; and
- travelling by car when they could walk or cycle instead.
