The Federal Department of Health has updated its guidelines on physical activity for children from birth to five years old.

The Australian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for the Early Years (Birth to 5 years) include recommendations about physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep.

Other guidelines provide recommendations for other age groups.
