Are CDN Preschoolers Physically Active or Sedentary?

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!
