These PowerPoint slides are designed for use by early years professionals to help share information on physical activity in this age group with peers, parents/carers, commissioners and other agencies. They can be tailored and used as the basis for a presentation or adapted to include local information. The slides can be mixed and matched to include just the information that you need.

Here we provide an overview of the UK physical activity guidelines for the under-fives and the benefits of being physically activity for this age group. Information is included on the importance of physical activity for cognitive, social and physical development.

These slides can be used freely with acknowledgement to the British Heart Foundation National Centre for Physical Activity and Health.

A full reference list can be found on the final slide.

This slide set focuses specifically on the UK physical activity guidelines and the benefits of physical activity for health and wellbeing. Additional slides focusing on different aspects of physical activity in the early years are also available.
