Infographic details ‘what works to get kids active’
June 14, 2013
A new infographic by Active Living Research, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), shows the estimated amount of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, in minutes, that children could get from several distinct school and community policy changes. A combination of these can help kids meet the national recommendation of daily physical activity.
The data is based on a study led by Dr. David Bassett, funded by RWJF through Active Living Research, and published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine earlier this year.
An article summary, graphic summary table, and the full study are also available.
