During Theme 4, Healthy Kids Community Challenge Danforth East-York will be working to encourage children and families to build a balanced day that is not filled with screen time. It’s all about powering off devices and playing more.
The focus of Power Off and Play! is on minimizing children’s recreational and sedentary screen time. This theme helps children and families build a balanceced day that includes:
- Staying within the recommended screen time limits
- Putting screens away during important times of day (sleep time and meal and snack time)
- Replacing some screen time with other activities (physical, social interaction, and fun and educational activities)
