Early Years (under 5s)

 1.    Physical activity should be encouraged from birth, particularly through floor-based play and water-based activities in safe environments.

2.    Children of pre-school age who are capable of walking unaided should be   physically active daily for at least 180 minutes (3 hours), spread throughout the day.

3.    All under 5s should minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary (being restrained or sitting) for extended periods (except time spent sleeping).
