Saskatchewan in motion is a province wide movement aimed at increasing physical activity of children and youth. Less than 15% of Saskatchewan kids are active enough to keep healthy and be productive. Kids today average 6 to 7 hours of screen time a day.
To be healthy – physically, mentally and socially – our kids need to move more. According to Canada's physical activity guidelines, children require a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity every day, and more is better. Saskatchewan in motion inspires, galvanizes and connects a provincial movement of educators, parents, caregivers and community leaders to increase opportunities for just 30 minutes of physical activity at home, at school and in the community. If we all work together and share the responsibility of increasing physical activity for our kids, we will be part of a Saskatchewan solution to get our kids moving.
