Plugged-in preschoolers should go out and play
« on: May 27, 2008, 11:02:40 PM »
Almost all Canadian children are failing when it comes to being physically active and the trend is getting worse as kids spend six hours a day or more in front of some type of screen, says a new report card from a trio of children's health advocacy groups.

Even more worrisome for health experts is that children as young as preschoolers are spending up to two hours a day in front of electronic devices, including televisions, computers and video screens.
