Just one hour of daily TV could turn your kids into couch potatoes
New Delhi, April 27 (ANI): Even an hour of TV could turn your tiny tots into couch potatoes, claims a new study. The research showed that kids who spent one hour in watching television a day were more likely to be overweight or obese compared to children who watched TV for less than 60 minutes each day. Furthermore, children who watched one hour or more of TV daily were 39 percent more likely to become overweight and 86 percent more likely to become obese between kindergarten and first grade. Researchers said that given the overwhelming evidence connecting the amount of time TV viewing and unhealthy weight, pediatricians and parents should attempt to restrict childhood TV viewing. Researchers also recommend limiting children and teens to less than two hours of screen time each day.
