The good news: almost three quarters of three and four year olds in Canada are meeting recommended daily physical activity guidelines (180 minutes a day).
The bad news: less than a quarter of three and four year old adhere to guidelines for the maximum amount of time (no more than one hour a day) they spend in front of a screen each day.
The message for parents and caregivers: put away the screens and go outside to play!
