For the 1st time ever, WHO issues "screen time guidelines" for young kids

Screentime is increasingly a major issue common with kids & WHO has issued 'screentime guidelines' for young kids for the first time ever; like how much screen time children under 5 should get? Kids under 5 should spend more than 1 hour & none at all for those under 1. WHO didn't specifically detail the potential harm caused by too much screen time. It noted that physical inactivity is a major factor to rise in obesity.
