Celebrate Screen-Free Week in May

The National WIC Association is proud to officially endorse Screen-Free Week (May 5 – 11), the annual celebration where children, families, schools, and communities turn on life–by turning off screens. We all know that children spend far too much time with screens: an astonishing average of 32 hours a week for preschoolers and even more for older children. Too much screen time is linked to poor school performance, childhood obesity, attention problems, and the erosion of creative play. It can also be habit forming.
