Toddlers and Physical Activities


The National Association for Sport and Physical Education recommends that toddlers get at least 30 minutes of structured physical activity each day as well as an additional hour or more of unstructured physical activity. They also state that toddlers "should not be sedentary for more than 60 minutes at a time except when sleeping." So ask yourself: "Is my child getting that much activity and am I regularly planning games and activities that engage my toddler's large muscles?"
