Pause To Play is meant to teach us about the health effects screen time has on people of all ages, and to encourage physical activity, and healthy nutrition with kids and youth.
Screen time is any time spent using a TV, computer, tablet, hand-held video game or cell phone. Links have been found between too much media use (more than 2 hours per day) and obesity, poor nutrition and poor mental health.
Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Unit, and local community partners are encouraging students and their families to pledge to “Pause to Play” from May 10-16 in support of the initiative by sharing resources and fun-filled free, or low-cost community activities.
