The University of Indiana as a result of the 18-month study on overweight schoolchildren, was to identify the major impact of consumption of soda, watching TV, hobbies video and computer games, as well as the frequency of meals on the weight of the students.
The more a child is drinking soda and watching TV, the more likely he gets the extra weight. The more meals a day, the less likely to gain weight. Participation in team sports also allows you to maintain a healthy weight.
As stated by Professor School of Public Health Bloomington Dong Chul SEO: “The school and the family can successfully influence these modifiable risk factors, reducing the likelihood of obesity in school children.”
