The following links provide guidance for child care providers and parents regarding the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for limiting screen time (TV, DVD, and video viewing) and encouraging adequate physical activity for children. Reproducible parent-focused handouts, a poster, and fact sheets addressing these recommendations are included.

Materials were developed and distributed by the Iowa Department of Public Health Bureau of Nutrition and Health Promotion and funded by the CDC and USDA’s WIC program.
