Children and adolescents need to get 60 or more minutes of physical activity each day. This should include a combination of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, and vigorous-intensity activity, such as running. Activities that increase the heart rate, making conversations difficult while moving, are considered to be moderate to vigorous physical activities. Be sure to include vigorous-intensity aerobic activity on at least three days per week.
Another way for you to determine if you are getting the U.S. Surgeon General’s recommendation for daily physical activity is to strive for at least 10,000 steps a day! For more information on physical activity recommendations please visit www.CDC.gov.
