App to help balance kids' screen time with physical activity

6:15 min

Too much screen time is a common complaint parents have about their kids. Radio Sweden heard how one mother responded by developing an app.

Sweden is an active nation but even so many people - especially younger ones - are spending more time in front of screens. That's something Stockholmer Malin Sjöstrand has noticed with her own child.

Sjöstrand works in the IT sector and decided to develop a new app to help people better balance their screen time with the time they spend on a physical activity. Sjöstrand co-founded the non-profit, Scriin, to get children and adolesents moving again. She sat down with Radio Sweden's Ulla Engberg to explain how it works.
