Brain - Children 'become less active during primary years'
Key Highlights

61 % of children in Year 1 did at least an hour of MVPA per day

"We saw marked differences in physical activity levels between boys and girls, with girls engaging in less MVPA and more sedentary time on both weekdays and weekends than boys at age six," the study says

A child who is obese at age six, and remains so at age 11, took part in 10 minutes less MVPA per weekday at age 11 than a similar child of healthy weight at both ages
