Are childhood sleep duration and adult BMI connected?

Posted Apr 01 2009 3:48pm 1 Comment

A very interesting read... short and to the point. A study from New Zealand showed that there is a connection between childhood sleep duration and adult body mass index ( BMI ). The less sleep (less than 11 hours per day) a child receives between the ages of 7-11 years old, the higher the BMI as an adult in their 30s. No apparent significant or consistent results were obtained for moderate or long sleepers (more than 11 hours per day).
Here is yet another reason why your child, tween or teen needs their beauty sleep! It is very important for them to get to bed on time and get as much sleep as possible. Not only will you see them performing at their fullest potential in school and not only will they be on their best behavior most of the time, but now, it has been shown that you help their bodies to be at their healthiest weight for life.
