Front cover of Canadian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for the Early Years 0-4 years.

Summary:
The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology released new Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for the Early Years in April 2012. These Guidelines describe the minimum amount and types of physical activity that are required for healthy growth and development for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. The Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines describe what sedentary behaviour is, how much to limit it by, the benefits of doing so, and ideas for when and how sedentary behaviour can be swapped for physical activity. Both Guidelines reflect advances in exercise science and input from experts in the field, and align with international guidelines used in other countries.
