“…Recent evidence now indicates that a large proportion of children and adolescents routinely fail to accumulate recommended physical activity guidelines proposed by leading health authorities ( 36,42 ). Of particular concern, researchers have shown that physical activity levels appear to peak at approximately 6 years of age, after which there is a consistent decline into adolescence and adulthood ( 126).…”

“…Children of primary school age in the United Kingdom (UK) engage in sedentary behaviour ((low energy expenditure activities) in a seated or reclined position during waking hours (Sedentary Behaviour Research Network, 2012)) for between 5-7 hours per day (Griffiths et al, 2013). In addition, levels of participation in moderateto-vigorous physical activity are low (Griffiths et al, 2013).…”

“…In addition, levels of participation in moderateto-vigorous physical activity are low (Griffiths et al, 2013). Schools are frequently used as contexts for promoting children's health due to the ability to maximise reach, availability of existing resources, and possibility of curricular integration and sustainability (Fairclough et al, 2013).…”

“…This grade was influenced by the quality of data available to inform this indicator. Specifically, the MCS 7,8 provided the highest quality data (in terms of sample size, sampling strategy, and objective measures of PA employed) though data were only available for 7 to 8 year old children. As the grade for this indicator should reflect children of all ages, data from the HSE (2008) 4 and the HBSC (2010) 9 were included.…”

“…Pastarųjų metų moksliniai tyrimai atskiruose Europos regionuose pateikia skirtingus vaikų fizinio aktyvumo rodiklių duomenis, tačiau daugelyje šalių daugiau nei 50 proc. jaunesniojo mokyklinio amžiaus vaikų yra nepakankamai fiziškai aktyvūs [4,5]. Nustatyta, kad mažiausiai fiziškai aktyvių vaikų yra Pietų Europos šalyse, daugiausia -Šiaurės ir Rytų Europos regionuose [6].…”
