Sometimes the smallest voice has the biggest impact…

Looking for some interesting ways to get active with the kids? Sport Australia’s Tiny Trainers have fun challenges to help you find your 30 every day.

While adults need 30 minutes of physical activity a day, kids need 60 minutes. It is important for parents to role model active behaviour to get their kids physically active. Recent figures show 65 per cent of Australian adults did not get a healthy amount of physical activity in 2018.

In 2018, 77 percent of children who had an active parent were themselves physically active in organised sports or physical activity outside of school, compared to 59 per cent with an inactive parent [1].

Parenthood wreaks havoc with routine and often causes physical activity to become deprioritised. Tiny Trainers seeks to flip this mindset and use the pester power of children to persuade parents to move more.

From a family dance off to old fashioned four square, the Tiny Trainers will show you lots of new ways to fit 30 minutes of physical activity into your day.

Daily Activity Tips

Try to allow no more than 2 hours a day of screen time like TV and computer games. Make a rule that everyone must get up and walk around during commercials to get some physical activity.
