Special Issue "Childhood Physical Activity and Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 11762
We are editing a Special Issue for the journal Children focusing on the role of physical activity and health in childhood to advance the state of knowledge through a collection of articles. It is a well-established fact that physical activity plays a crucial role in supporting and promoting children’s physical, mental, and social health. Therefore, physical activity and health are considered two major concepts to address in the child population. It is well known that in recent years, the sedentary lifestyle of children has increased due to technological advancements and the COVID-19 Pandemic. A sedentary lifestyle can threaten the motor skill development and health of children in the future. By contrast, different physical activities can have positive effects on children's health. Physical activity can increase the physical fitness levels of children, plays an important role in biomotor development, and also reflects positively on school performance. Thus, physical activity practices are an excellent tool for promoting health. However, more research and data are needed to determine the right exercises for children to be healthier. This Special Issue aims to provide new insights into the effects and health benefits of physical exercise in children. For these purposes, we welcome you to submit different types of articles, primarily original research articles.
