How Much Screen Time Should Children Under Five Get?

The World Health Organization has issued its first-ever guidance for how much screen time
children under five should get. Kids under the age of five old should only be exposed to screens
for an hour each day. The health organization does recommend that less is better when it comes
to screen time. For children under one year of age, the organization says that the child should
receive zero screen time. Guidelines from the World Health Organization are very similar to the
guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics. That group says parents of young children
under two should choose “high-quality programming” with educational value that can be
watched with a parent to help kids understand what they’re seeing.
