Forget the Carrots ... Read a book AND play outside more often.
Didn't know to post this in the Family or the Medical Forum ... but since it Kid's Eyes ... here will do.
Short-sightedness, or myopia, a global epidemic as children spend less time outdoors
A précis of the News article is along the lines of that it's been my assumption that short-sightedness is caused by too many books and use of computers and tablets etc, but recent research does refute the claim.
While that might a contributing factor, it's not the root cause.
Get your child into the outdoors if you want to help them avoid having vision issues later in life — that's the message from researchers looking into an expected increase in the worldwide rate of short-sightedness.
In memory of Linkon Park's Chester Bennington ...
Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure...

It's difficult in practice living in a country were it rains half of the year. You have to make a special effort to get them to play outside these days because of "screens! ".
Most of their friends are wired into the web via Ps4, x box etc.
Not like it was in the good old days when you only went home to eat and sleep.

^ the good thing about the new lifestyle of young children is you know where they are, at home and not roaming the streets and standing in bored groups outside the convenience shop.
