According to koodakpress، Americans as young as age three have been encouraged to engage in physical activity, according to new federal exercise guidelines.

The guidelines, last updated in 2008, used to urge active play from age six.

But the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found 80% of Americans are not active enough.

America’s lack of activity has resulted in $117bn (£90bn) spent annually on healthcare and 10% of all premature deaths, the update states.

Although most of the best practices for physical activity remain unchanged, the update emphasises that any activity is beneficial.
