Friendship networks and children’s physical activity

Children spend a lot of time with their friends at school, in the neighbourhood, and during organized activities. As a result, friends may influence the behaviour and choices of one another. This WellSpring highlights a study undertaken in elementary schools within Edmonton and Fort McMurray, Alberta that aimed to understand how friendships may influence the physical activity participation of children.
