Canada's Sedentary Guidelines
To complement Canada's physical activity guidelines released in 2011, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) has just released Canada's Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for Children and Youth - the first of their kind in the world.
The new Sedentary Behaviour guidelines provide recommendations to Canadian children and youth on limiting sedentary behaviour during discretionary or "free" time in order to reduce health risks.
The two guidelines together can be thought of as a recipe for families to give children the best possible chance to gain health and social benefits. Check out the new Sedentary Behaviour Guideline information sheets for children and youth.
