The United States Department of Health and Human Services recommends that children should be getting 60 minutes a day of physical activity.
These activities are made up of three different types of movements.
Activities where kids are rhythmically moving their large muscles.
Activities that make the muscles do more work than they normally would during daily activities.
Activities that put a force on the bones (usually by impact with the ground) to promote bone growth.
