The World Health Organization has revealed how much screen time children under 5 should get: Not very much, and none at all for those under 1.
The U.N. health agency said kids under 5 should not spend more than one hour watching screens every day — and that less is better.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children younger than 18 months should avoid screens other than video chats. It says parents of young children under two should choose “high-quality programming” with educational value and that can be watched with a parent to help kids understand what they’re seeing.
The agency said infants less than 1 year should spend at least half an hour every day on their stomachs and that older kids should get at least three hours of physical activity every day.
