Young children are better off watching the screen

1 min read

WHO health organization advises children under the age of five to look at the screens at most for one hour a day.

It is the first time that the organization advises on the use of screens by young children. The WHO is part of the United Nations.

The WHO recommends that children under the age of twelve do not look at screens at all.

“By improving physical activities, sitting and sleeping behavior, children become healthier and the eventual risk of disease is reduced,” the UN agency writes in the advice.

By looking at screens more often, children would sooner suffer from health problems, including insomnia and obesity. By limiting the time behind a screen, parents teach their children good sleep behavior.
