Help your baby move and play every day


This leaflet is designed for parents and carers of young babies who have not yet started to walk. It includes information on how much physical activity babies need to do to benefit their health as well as practical physical activity ideas and how these can be incorporated into a daily routine. It provides an overview of:

  • why being active is important
  • what types of physical activity are best
  • ideas for active play
  • healthy eating for young children.

A leaflet with information for parents of young children who can walk is also available.

To order hard copies of this leaflet please visit the British Heart Foundation website.
