Prof Mandhane said the new findings suggested screen time should be far more limited for pre-school children. He said: “Our data suggests between zero and 30 minutes a day is the optimal amount of screen time. “The preschool period is an ideal time for education on healthy relationships with screens, and we believe our data shows that you can’t start too early.”
