Australian recommendations for physical activity are for at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise daily (children and adolescents). It is also recommended that Australian children and young people should not spend more than two hours each day using electronic media for entertainment (eg. computer games, internet, TV) particularly in daylight hours.
