Our health and nutrition resources offer age-appropriate lesson ideas, book suggestions, movement activities, healthy recipes, crafts, and songs to reinforce the health and nutrition lessons being taught. Our lessons are designed to be integrated throughout the school year. This fact sheet helps Head Start health managers provide important information to program staff on the NCH identified health priority, healthy active living. It includes concrete information on the importance of physical activity, a healthy diet, and quality sleep to the overall growth, development, and learning of young children. (Preschoolers need at least 180 minutes of physical activity each day, while kids aged five to 17 need 60 minutes of mild to moderate exercise a day.) With the help of some of our resourceful readers, we’ve rounded up 15 of our favourite indoor activities kids can play to stay active. Who doesn’t like a good dance party?
