Toddlers should receive at least 30 minutes of structured physical activity and 60+ minutes of unstructured physical activity each day.
Preschoolers should receive at least 60 minutes of structured physical activity and 60+ minutes of unstructured physical activity each day.

See chart below. The area shaded in blue shows the percentage of child care providers addressing that physical activity best practice at baseline. The red area represents the percentage of child care providers addressing that same practice three months after their initial Be Active Kids training.
