    Need help in setting the activity level. So I work from home and have a desk job but I do not sit more than 6 hours. I cook once a day, take care of 2 year and 6 year in the evening (not lot of running), 20 mins exercise on most of the days. Right now I have set to LIGHTLY ACTIVE , after reading this post , I feel like I am under sedentary. Please suggest ...

    Depends on which system you are trying to use. But under Sedentary is totally wrong direction.

    On the TDEE system you are easily in the Active category with exercise and daily life combined.
    Your daily life with kids is already Lightly-Active, exercise just bumped you up a level. (unless exercise is very slow walking for 20 min).

    On the MFP system you are still Lightly Active with household responsibilities - and then you would add the exercise when actually done - which sounds about daily.

    At the end of the week - they would likely end up at the same amount of average daily burned.
    Though on TDEE system you eat the same amount daily - may be good for planning. But you better workout.
    On the MFP system you vary amount eaten daily - so maybe harder to plan.
