As of November 20, Canada’s first-ever 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for children in their early years will be available for parents and caregivers. These new Guidelines provide recommendations about how much physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and sleep children less than four years of age should get in a 24-hour period. Participants will learn about the background and rationale behind the development of these Guidelines, the methods for their development, the final guidelines, next steps, and additional resources.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
•    Understand the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children of the Early Years.
•    Apply the Guidelines in their own context.
•    Locate resources for sharing the Guidelines with parents and caregivers.

Presenter: Dr Casey Gray is a Research Manager with the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group. Casey is part of the team that conducted the background research informing the development of the Guidelines and coordinates the effort promoting their dissemination and activation.

Registration has been set-up through Eventbrite.
