Most young people do not get enough exercise, putting them at risk of long term health problems, a new report has found.

92% percent of Australian teenages are not meeting their daily physical activity requirements, with most spedning upwards of 3 hours a day on phones and tablet devices. A Vic Health report has also uncovered some alarming figures about screen time and inactivity in young children aged between 1-5.

Vasiliki Raptis dissects the report, and speaks to health experts about the implications physical inactivity might have for young people in the long term.
