Two weeks ago, ParticipACTION released their 2018 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada.
The 2018 Report Card is the first to focus on ways that physical activity can improve kids’ brain health by boosting both cognitive ability and mental wellness. They are calling this the Brain + Body Equation! New research reveals how leading a more active life can release kids’ potential in several ways; including how they perform in the classroom, problem-solve with friends and maintain focus.
We are confident that the prospect of better brain health will inspire you to find ways to make getting active more accessible, fun and frequent for all kids. You can review the full report or the highlight report at the following link:
