Brief interruption of sedentary behavior improves blood glucose in children

August 27, 2015

Children’s blood glucose levels could be improved by simply taking short breaks to walk during sedentary activities, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“Interrupting a long period of sitting with a few minutes of moderate activity can have short-term benefits on a child’s metabolism,” Jack A. Yanovski, MD, PhD, of the NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, said in a press release. “While we know getting 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity exercise each day improves children’s health and metabolism, small behavioral changes like taking short walking breaks can also yield some benefits.”
