New screen time guidelines

May 10, 2017

Daily recreational screen time, sleep and exercise guidelines have been released for children and teenagers (aged 5 to 17 years) by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Sport NZ.

The broad guide for a “healthy 24 hours” is:

• No more than two hours per day of recreational screen time.

• Uninterrupted sleep of 9 to 11 hours a night for 5- to 13-year-olds, and 8 to 10 hours for 14- to 17-year-olds, with consistent bed and wake-up times.

• An accumulation of at least one hour a day of moderate to vigorous physical activity, and for activities that strengthen bones and muscle, such as jumping and skipping, to be done at least three times a week.

• Sit less and move more often.

Health Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman said the latest guidelines supported the childhood obesity plan, released in October 2015.

About 30 per cent of adults and 10 per cent of children are obese. New Zealand has the third-highest rate of adult obesity of developed countries.
