Charts and Pie Charts:

the usage of screen time for children as suggested by AAP

Educational content, 30% The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children ages 3 to 5 limit screen time (excluding educational content) to just 1 hour per day: Educational content like interactive e-books and educational videos and games can help develop skills like language and problem-solving. The AAP recommends up to 30% of daily screen time (around 30 minutes) can consist of high-quality educational content. General entertainment, 10% General entertainment content like videos, TV shows and games not specifically designed to be educational should be limited to around 10% of daily screen time (around 10 minutes) for this age group. No screen time, 60% The majority (around 60%) of a 3 to 5 year old’s waking hours should consist of screen-free activities that promote development, like creative play, outdoor activities, social interactions and reading books. Research shows that excessive screen time for young children can negatively impact language development, social skills, sleep quality, attention span and behavior. Setting clear limits and replacing screen time with interactive activities can help children in this age group thrive.
