This week's trivia question: 

In a large study of more than 7,000 children, researchers found one to four hours of this per day at age one was linked to delays in communication, fine motor skills, problem-solving and personal and social skills at 2 years old. Accordingly, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies younger than 18 months get none of this and that by ages 2 to 3, kids should only get up to an hour a day of it. What is it?
