Physical Activity Foundation

This is the home base of the Physical Activity Foundation, an Australian health promotion charity with the goal of reducing the impact of sedentary lifestyle diseases in children by teaching them healthy lifestyle habits through the delivery of large scale school and community based intervention programs. Here we share all our experiences about the hosting of our suite of programs - the Active Kids Challenge, the MOVE IT MOVChallenge profiling the product MOVband, Ride or Walk to School program and the Fruit and Vege pledge.

When parents are active, kids are active too!
a study conducted at the University of Alberta — in which kids in Grade 5 wore pedometers to accurately measure their daily activity level — “found that the most active children had parents who placed a higher value on their own personal fitness, reported greater encouragement of their children to be active, and frequently participated in physical activities with their children. Furthermore, this effect was most strongly observed on weekend days.” Check out the rest of this interesting article below!
