To promote healthy lifestyle habits during their formative years, a structured and comprehensive approach is needed. This approach has been outlined in The Singapore Integrated 24-Hour Activity Guidelines for Children and Adolescents (“Guidelines”), and was launch in January 2021.
A first for Singapore, the Guidelines are based on locally and globally established studies and best practices, and have been developed with our local population in mind. It aims to standardise advice on physical activities, screen time, eating habits and sleep for children and adolescents aged seven to 18 years of age within a 24-hour period, to improve health and promote adoption of healthy lifestyle habits. These guidelines are aligned with the national goals of the Health Promotion Board to promote healthier lifestyles.
