The bulk of research on children’s health related to obesity, physical activity, and nutrition is completed in large studies. However, the health of kids in rural areas is particularly vulnerable due to geographic isolation. This report presents the overall results of our 2016 Spatial Temporal Environment and Activity Monitoring Study, in three Northwestern Ontario communities. Featured topics include physical activity, active transportation, screen time, healthy eating, the built environment, health related quality of life and nature.
