Between social media, television and video games children are spending nearly 9 hours per day in front of a screen. These sedentary activities are preventing children from leading healthy and fulfilling lives. Parents can make a difference by limiting screen time to 1-2 hours per day and removing televisions and electronics from their bedrooms. Make sure your child has at least 1 hour of physical activity per day. Encourage them to get outside and get moving through activities like skateboarding, dog walking, and bike riding!
