Health Tip: Giving Toddlers Needed Playtime

Here's what's appropriate

(HealthDay News) -- Playtime is essential for children of all ages. Is your child getting enough?

The American Academy of Pediatrics advises:

  • Give children at least 60 minutes of unstructured playtime each day.
  • Make sure your child gets about 30 minutes of adult-led exercise daily.
  • Avoid more than a complete hour of inactivity.
  • These are only guidelines. Each child has different needs, and different schedules suit them best.
