Is she obese? Far from it. Perhaps the exception to the rule, however I am more inclined to the view that poor diet and lack of exercise would be greater contributory factors.
The report states that reduced sleep significantly increased the likelihood of
excessive weight gain; with children who slept longer aged three to five reported to be 61% less likely to be overweight aged seven.
What are your thoughts on the reports findings?
Do you think that these findings are useful and helpful to parents trying to tackle childhood obesity or do you think it helps to cover up for the lack of proper diet and exercise for our children?
