4. Switch off the screen and get active

How much time in front of the screen?

When kids and teens spend time in front of small screens – whether it’s the TV, computer or hand-held games – it takes away from the time they could spend playing sport, games or being active.
Australian guidelines recommend that kids and teens spend no more than 2 hours each day on small screen entertainment, and breaking up long periods of use as often as possible.
While computers and TV can be valuable for education and learning, the health benefits, skills and enjoyment that kids and teens get from being physically active are just as important.
