According to the abstract of this study, policies for mandatory physical education, physical activity breaks, and active transportation, had the greatest influence on the amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity that children participate in. Mandatory daily physical education provided children with 23 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), classroom activity breaks provided 19 minutes of MVPA, and active community provided 16 minutes of MVPA. Park renovations also provided children with an extra 12 minutes of MVPA.
