Kellogg's Cúl Camps released the survey today

Nearly nine out of ten parents think that mobile phones have replaced sport and activity in their kids’ lives.

That’s according to a new survey by Kelloggs Cul Camps – which found that children are spending almost two hours a day on a mobile device.


Almost half those quizzed said they thought their kids preferred being on their mobile or tablet than being active.

While a third said they have to resort to bribery to encourage their kids to take part in sport.
