Sensible Screen Use

The evidence is clear that excessive screen use in young children is harmful to development causing issues down the line like myopia, obesity, social anxiety and even resulting in regressing learning outcomes. Scarily NZ is leading the way with device adoption in schools which is likely only fuelling the issue. IT guru Andrew, Paediatric Physio Julie Cullen and Dry Eye Specialist Alex Muntz (Auckland University) have started an organisation called Sensible Screen Use to get the message out there and drive a little more awareness around this alarming topic.
