SANCHEZ RUIZ-CABELLO, Francisco Javier et al. Promotion of physical activity in childhood and adolescence (part 1). Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.83, pp.279-291.  Epub Dec 09, 2019. ISSN 1139-7632.


The update on actions to promote physical activity in childhood and adolescence is addressed in two parts. In the first part, the benefits in health and the possible risks of physical activity are analyzed. In the second part, the evidence about the efficacy of the interventions directed to promote physical activity and decrease sedentary lifestyles in the pediatric age is assessed. The PrevInfad group suggests making interventions aimed at the promotion of physical activity or at reducing sedentary lifestyles, both in Primary Care and in the school or community environment.

Keywords : Physical activity; Adolescence; Exercise; Childhood; Interventions; Promotion; Recommendations; Sedentarism.
