HBSSPAN Inactive Young Peoples Project
Supported by funding from Leicestershire Public Health, HBSSPAN deliver 6 week interventions and one-off festivals to encourage more young people to meet the Chief Medical Officer's latest guidance on physical activity levels.
- Children and young people should engage in moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity for an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week. This can include all forms of activity such as physical education, active travel, after-school activities, play and sports.
- Children and young people should engage in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week to develop movement skills, muscular fitness, and bone strength.
- Children and young people should aim to minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary, and when physically possible should break up long periods of not moving with at least light physical activity.
