How can you support your child in achieving 60 minutes of accumulated Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity (MVPA) every day? “Give Yourself 10!” Build in 10 minute bursts of physical activities that “take it up a notch”. The calendar on the back of this sheet includes lots of great examples of ways to increase your family’s movement. Other ways include running, jumping, dancing, biking, or any activity that increases your heart rate and makes you out of breath some of the time.
Moderate intensity- when your are working hard enough to raise your heart rate but can still talk but not sing words to a song.
Vigorous intensity- when you are breathing hard and aren’t able to say more than a few words without pausing for breath
