Sit less. Sleep better. Move more

Is your little one spending too much time in car seats, strollers, and highchairs?

Check out the resources section for more details on Sleep Guidelines for all ages.

Canadian kids aged four and under are spending too much time in front of screens, which prevents them from meeting new movement behaviour guidelines. These Guidelines were developed by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP), the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) at the CHEO Research Institute, the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta, the Public Health Agency of Canada, ParticipACTION and a group of leading researchers from Canada and around the world, with input from over 600 national and international stakeholders. Developing healthy sleep habits in the early years is important; this includes a calming bedtime routine with consistent bedtimes and wake up times, avoiding screen time before sleep, and keeping screens out of the bedroom.
