Stop putting your babies and toddlers in front of screens, WHO advises!
New guidelines from the World Health Organization recommend no screen time for infants and toddlers under the age of two years old.
Infants and toddlers under the age of 2 should not spend any time in front of screens, according to new guidelines issued by the World Health Organization on Wednesday.
The WHO recommends against any screen time for infants, as well as 1-year-olds. Instead, they encourage sedentary time “engaging in reading and storytelling with a caregiver” for up to an hour at a time.
For children between ages 2 and 4, the WHO advises up to one hour at a time in front of screens.
The recommendations are part of broader guidelines on physical activity, sleep and sedentary behavior. The guidelines encourage more physical activity for infants and younger children, with up to 30 minutes of “tummy time” per day for infants, and at least 180 minutes of various physical activities for toddlers and older kids.
“Early childhood is a period of rapid development and a time when family lifestyle patterns can be adapted to boost health gains,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in a statement.
