Daily physical activity is vital for all Australian children and young people. Children and young people who accumulate the minimum amount of physical activity every day are at a lower risk of conditions including excess weight or obesity, Type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome and other comorbidities. They are also more likely to see improvements in their aerobic fitness and bone health and experience positive mental health benefits. Despite these obvious health benefits, only 19% of Australian children and young people, aged 5-17 years meet the physical activity recommendations.Physical activities that strengthen muscles and bones should be included on at least three days per week. For additional health benefits, children and young people should be engaged in physical activity  every day.
