According to the study 2 hours and 43 minutes of that time is spent watching TV. The study also claims that kids spend 54 minutes per day looking at playlists on their iPods.
"The summer holidays are traditionally a time when you expect children to be outdoors playing with their friends," said Clare McDougall, Education Programme Director from npower.
