Despite the many benefits of physical activity, unbelievably, less than 15% of our kids are meeting national guidelines.That means, in a classroom of 25 students, only 4 are getting the minimum requirements.
The data used to inform Saskatchewan in motion strategies is gathered annually in the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity for Children & Youth.Active Healthy Kids Canada is an organization that gathers the best available data from Canada’s leading researchers and compiles it in a concise report card format.The report card provides data on physical activity levels of children and youth as well as a reflection on the many issues impacting the physical activity levels of our kids.In 2009, Active Healthy Kids Canada was contracted to produce a Saskatchewan Supplement to the National Report Card on physical activity for children and youth. The Supplement helped to paint a clearer picture and provide a more detailed baseline of how physically active Saskatchewan children and youth really are. The Active Healthy Kids Canada report card and the Saskatchewan Supplement to the report card both Saskatchewan children and youth a failing grade for their physical activity levels.
