Data and learning: Children and young people

Less than one in five young people (between the ages of 5-15) are moving for 60 minutes every day. It’s important to build positive attitudes around physical activity early in life to act as the foundation for a healthy life. Families, particularly parents and care-givers, play a big role in shaping children’s attitudes and behaviours toward physical activity. Here you will find the latest research related to the physical activity and sport levels, motivations and barriers of children and young people.
