More freedom to roam and outdoor play with risk good for kids says ParticipACTION
More freedom to roam and outdoor play with risks make Johnny and Jane more physically active says ParticipACTION in the The 2015 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity in Children and Youth (formerly the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card).
Risky play was the subject of a recent public presentation in Halifax with Tim Gill made possible by Stepping Up Halifax and the NS Department of Health and Wellness
Highlights of ParticipACTION’s 2015 report are available here and the full report, here.
ParticipACTION has also put together a handy social media kit and an infographic.
