Less TV May Help Obese Kids Lose Weight
- At least one in five American children is overweight, a number that has
increased more than 50% in the past 20 years.
- A new study shows that reducing the amount of time kids participate in
sedentary behaviors, such as watching television or playing video games, can
help overweight children lose weight.
- Parents can help their children by budgeting television time in advance,
encouraging physical activities, and being a good role model.
