New York City Limits Children's Sitting Time In Day Care Centers

| by Michael Allen

New York City's new health code is bringing drastic changes to city-licensed day care centers this week.

The new rules say that kids must be at least 2 years old to be given juice, which cannot exceed 4 ounces per day, notes My Fox NY.

Children are also limited to 30 minutes of TV, computer videos and iPad viewing each day, but toddlers under two won't be allowed to watch any.

The kids will also not be allowed to sit passively for more than 30 consecutive minutes., except when they are taking naps, doing art or listening to stories, reports PIX 11.

The New York City health department claims the changes are supposed to fight childhood obesity.
