The benefits of physical activity for children are well established. These benefits highlight the importance of ensuring that children have access and opportunity to participate in physical activity at home, at school, and in their communities. This Special Issue intends to provide authors with a platform to contribute their research specific to how physical activity is benefitting the health and wellbeing of children and how specific programs and interventions are changing behavior and improving health.
