Experts Say No Screen Time For Your Toddler.

The Reasons Make All Kinds Of Sense

April 29, 2019

Last year the American Heart Association said your kids had a better chance of being overweight or obese.  Now the World Health Organization is urging you to keep the baby away from the screen for better sleep time and better brain function!  The study says that kids under 2 should, instead of screen time, be read to or have a story told to them.  Babies need more physical activity, like "tummy time" which encourages the baby to work on motorskills.  "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.  

Your baby may end up with physical and mental health issues with too much screen time so it's best if they don't get any if they are under 2 years old.  

Point is that kids will have plenty of screen time when they get older and it's more important that they get good old-fashioned exercise as a baby.  Read the full story on USA Todays website.
