Children in Yorkshire spend almost five days every month playing videogames and watching TV.
A report has found children spend an average of 4.5 days a month play Xbox, Nintendo and Playstation or watching television instead of playing outside - that is the equivalent of 54 days a year in front of a screen.
*Researchers also found children in the region spend just 2.8 hours per week outoors, ten times less than they spend in front of the TV. *
In fact, only 11% of families admit to taking part in family outdoor activities together such like ball games or bike rides, once a year. And 25% of the nation partake in outdoor family fun no more than once a month.
Kim Wilde is taking part in a campaign to encourage us to spend more time outside.
