Mygind, Laerke; Kryger, Tine; Sidenius, Gry; Schipperijn, Jasper; Bentsen, Peter – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Since children spend a large proportion of their time in institutional settings such as schools, health promotion researchers have identified this as an important setting to promote physical activity (PA). Apart from physical education, PA could be integrated into the school curriculum in other ways. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine…
