hi Pooja!how r u! I agree with u and understand your concerns. Watching TV or mobile while having food could be disastrous later on. Child might overfeed herself and become obese and also there is no physical activity which again leads to obesity laterin life . it is advisable to serve her meals with the entire family on dinner table. make meal time, family time. Discuss each others concerns, talk to her what happened at school, listen to what she has to say. Discuss values, current topics, family ethics etc. on dinner table. this should make the child get rid of this habit. If possible , avoid use of gadgets while having meals, and this rule applies to all family members. keep phones and gadgets out if sight for few hours in a day. stipulated time says 1hour maximum should be allowed for gadgets. Pooja we need to set an example for child to follow. engage her in more of physical activities like dance, skating, judo, badminton etc as per her choice . if possible,entire family should follow one sport each as per their interest. hope this helps!

if yes then she is addicted and cannot be stopped immediately. Slowly you need to change her routine from tv watching to story telling, listening to music or with family eating together.
