Panel says children need an hour of exercise over the course of a day
A panel of national obesity experts is recommending that children get an hour of exercise over the course of each day.
The committee was created to cut through conflicting advice on children's exercise. More than two dozen groups have their own recommendations. The panel reviewed more than 850 existing studies on child physical activity and found that most recommended 30 to 45 minutes of continuous activity.
But it decided that 60 minutes of exercise was more appropriate because children typically are active in "fits and spurts" rather than in a continuous manner.
