Limiting TV Time

Limiting toddler’s TV time now prevents health problems later, suggests a new study in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.

Does your TV serve as an electronic nanny when you’re trying to get things done around the house?
A study published in last month’s Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine suggests that too much TV for toddlers can lead to lasting health, academic and social problems later on.

What’s too much?
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that kids watch no more than one to two hours daily, while kids under 2 need none.
