Daliy Fitness Tip: Aug. 26

Limit screen time (television, movies, videos and computer games) to less than 2 hours a day! Kid's aren't only watching WAY too much TV, think about all of the other "screen time" activities their engaged in everyday: video games, ipods, cell phones, ipads, hand held games, computers, etc...

Children ages 8 -18 spend an average of 4 ½ hours per day watching television, 1½ hours using computers, and more than an hour playing video games.
