Infographic: Active Kids Learn Better

Obesity can have serious ramifications for kids' cognitive development and affect school attendance. Because children spend so much time at school, schools have a unique opportunity to help children become more healthy and active. Policies that support daily physical education and regular activity breaks during the school day can help increase physical activity, improve academic performance and improve classroom behavior among students.

This infographic features evidence on how physical activity and fitness may help school-aged children maximize their academic performance, and provides an overview of the effects of physical activity on the developing brain. Findings presented in this infographic come from a related ALR research brief.

This infographic is also available in Spanish: Los Niños Activos Aprenden Mejor.
