Children who met Canadian guidelines for television viewing, physical activity and sleep duration were more likely to have less body fat and lower BMI compared with children who did not meet the guidelines, according to findings presented at the European Congress on Obesity.

“Overall, there is a low proportion of children that are meeting guidelines for sleep, physical activity and TV viewing,” Peter T. Katzmarzyk, PhD, of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University, told Endocrine Today. “However, those that meet all three guidelines had lower levels of overall body fat and also a much lower odds of being obese.”
