Parental Support for Child Health - Infographics

Parents play a major role in supporting health behaviours and providing children opportunities for healthy, active living. In Canada, between 1979 and 2004, rates of obesity in children more than doubled.

Physical activity, healthy eating, and reducing recreational screentime are important for promoting and maintaining healthy weights. Each of these infographics focuses on a specific child health behaviour: daily physical activity, screen time, and healthy eating.

These infographics and graphics present results from a telephone survey of 3,206 parents living in Ontario, conducted between February and March, 2015. All results are parent-reported.
