Active Tots

Encouraging your child to be physically active may help in leading a healthy, active lifestyle later on as an adult. Give your child the best start in life!

Active Tots

Keeping your little one active is so important. It's as important to a child's development as numeracy, reading and writing.

Active children from birth to 5 years old are healthy, happy, school ready and sleep better.

  • Under 1 should be doing at least 30 minutes of physical activity across the day (tummy/floor time)
  • 1-5 years should be doing 180 minutes (3 hours) of physical activity per day.

It is important to establish high levels of physical activity as early as possible to encourage children to stay active enough to benefit their health and to support continued interest and participation throughout adult life.

Outdoor play is ideal, visit the local park or play are and enjoy some fresh air!

In this section you will find information on staying active at home, pregnancy information and lots of activity ideas and videos.

Our Physical Activity Guideline Leaflet provides handy activity ideas, top tips and guidance on how active under 5s should be.
