The World Health Organization (WHO) recently made recommendations issuing guidelines calling for less screen time for children aged five and younger.

The WHO guidelines no screen time for children aged one and young, and one hour a day for those aged two to five is aimed at parents, giving them some recommendations on limiting screen time for their young kids.

The guidelines come after a recent study which found that “excessive screen time has been associated with various negative outcomes, including poorer academic performance” in children.
