Sitting and Screens for Children 5-12 Years
Less sitting and screens helps children learn and develop, keeping them social, confident and healthy.
Children need help every day to limit:
Sitting time: break it up often as possible.
Screen time: no more than 2 hours each day (excluding school work).
Tips for less sitting and screens
- Screen free bedrooms
- Swap tablets for books
- Try music instead of TV
- Swap the smartphone on outings for colouring ins
- Break up long car trips with park plays
- Screen free meals
