The report, which calls exercise “critical for overall health,” marks the first update since the guidelines were first released in 2008.

Kids need a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity per day.
Similar to the 2008 report, this one suggests that kids get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day, ranging from moderate to vigorous aerobic physical activity. At least three times a week, kids should engage in vigorous-intensity physical activity, like running, jumping rope, swimming, or playing soccer. Since kids are still developing, they should also do “muscle strengthening” activities (such as weightlifting) and “bone-strengthening” activities (such as running) three times a week.
