How much exercise does my 2 year old need?

Two year old children are very active and will usually get all the exercise they need from their normal daily play. In most cases, there is no need to add an exercise routine.

A two year old is constantly on the move running, jumping, climbing, and wiggling. Every activity is teaching them about their body and how it works. They are also burning off an incredible amount of energy.

If you are concerned that your two year old does not get enough exercise, try changing the daily routine to include more physical activities. Play a game of tag in the backyard or have a dance party. She will be thrilled that you are taking part in her play.

Children learn by example. If you are active, your child will mimic you. So, get out and go for walks with your toddler. Let your actions teach her that physical activity is important.
