Does ‘free time’ mean ‘screen time’ in your house?

Did you know that the government recommendations for children aged 5 -12 is to limit screen time to less than 2 hours a day?

SCARY STATISTIC: Only 1 in 10 children currently reach this recommendation

More Information

The Australian Government Department of Health recommends that children aged 5-12 years of age should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity each day. They also recommend activities that strengthen muscle and bone at least three days each week.

There is also a misguided belief that children should not participate in any strength work involving lifting or carrying objects as their muscles and bones are still growing. The Department of Health now recognises the benefits of strength development in children for the following future health benefits:

  • Prevent and control heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  • Manage blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol
  • Improve posture, mobility and balance
  • Maintain functional status and the ability to do everyday activities

More information on all of the above can be found at The Australian Department of Health website.
