We all know that being physically active each and every day is important for the healthy growth and development of babies, toddlers and preschoolers. However, do you know how much physical activity do children under six years old need to do to keep fit and healthy?


I remember taking a photograph the first time my son discovered he could put his toes in his mouth and the look of pure amazement on his face. I was lying beside him on the bed while he was lying on his back touching and grabbing his feet. Then he brought up his tiny, little foot further towards his mouth and suddenly hey presto, he popped his toes into his mouth. His gummy smile spread across his face and his eyes lit up in sheer delight.
