Research Reveals Your Toddler’s Daily Activity.. No Wonder You are Tired!

Research reveals your toddler’s daily activity…. and wow this one explains why you are totally exhausted at the end of each day!

Our minds have been blown away by these results! It certainly puts my daily activity to shame. Oh to have the energy of a crazy toddler, hey? But wait, that’s right, they zapped it all from us!

Huggies research reveals the amount of activity our toddlers do in just ONE day

Huggies have shared that Aussie toddlers clock up to 17,448 steps and travel 3.4km Every. Single. Day.

That’s a whopping 1710 moves per hour. PER. HOUR!

They do 4 x more steps than most adults do a day, it’s like climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge 6 x over.

To put it another way that’s like lapping the MCG stadium, SEVEN times.

They also revealed that our little ones are doing on average:

  • 5,280 crawl steps
  • 2,640 commando crawls
  • 2,400 leg kicks
  • 1,440 bum shuffles
  • 720 climbs

And that is just for ONE child. If you are the parent of multiples or have a couple of children under two, then WOAH you seriously deserve that drink tonight. No questions asked.
