Daily screen time among youths younger than 2 rose from 1.32 hours in 1997 to 3.05 hours in 2014, with most screen time spent on watching TV, researchers reported in JAMA Pediatrics. The findings also showed that the 2.47 hours average daily screen time among those ages 3 to 5 in 1997 didn’t significantly increase in 2014, but time spent on TV rose from more than an hour to more than two hours during the same period.
