What's sedentary behaviour?


It's the opposite of active behaviour. It's characterized by prolonged periods of inactivity or very little physical movement while awake. General examples of this is sitting or reclining. These two positions are the primary victims of couch surfing, tv marathons, computer game obsessions or prolonged stroller use etc.

How does sedentary behaviour affect the healthy growth and development of children?
