Outdoor play makes children healthier. An active lifestyle is particularly important for optimal growth and development of children. Restrictions due to the Corona virus make this more apparent. The professional network 'View Outside' collected the lifestyle consequences for visual, motoric, postural, weight, sleep and psychosocial youth health. We strongly recommend spending two hours a day outdoors, of which a minimum of one hour should be at least moderately intensive exercise. Other lifestyle measures are reducing sedentary behavior, rules on screen use and regular change of activities when sedentary.
