Sedentary Lifestyle Of Parents Can Be Imitated By Kids
The sedentary lifestyle is said to bring health complications later on. This would be even greater with unhealthy eating habits. The sedentary lifestyle of parents can be imitated by kids, who see the same lifestyle.
Young children are bound to follow what they see from their parents. Whatever habits they have are generally the ones that they have picked up from observing their parents. This would include health habits. That has been the result by a study made by researchers from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
The study has found that people who have a sedentary lifestyle would more than likely pass the same habits to their children. The study has said that this could lead to make recommended interventions aimed at people who have sedentary lifestyles, so as to encourage as well their children to become more active. The study has also shown that children from low income families are more likely to be obese.
In a 2015 study, it has been found out that children between two to five years old have 60 minutes of physical activity per day. This is way below than the recommended activity, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's site. The study has shown that the numbers of inactive children is even higher among Latinos and African-American families.
The research done by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute is to one thousand parent-children pairs from low income households. This comprises about 75 percent of Latinos who participated and around ten percent of African-American households. For the study, participants wore an accelerometer. This device measures acceleration and movement for 12 hours a day in a week, as Science Daily reports.
The study has found that if the parents did at least 40 minutes of activity in a day, the kids did the same thing. The same is true for sedentary parents, as the children are shown to be sedentary as well. The sedentary lifestyle has serious health consequences. The sedentary lifestyle of parents can be imitated by kids. A study has also shown that frozen dinner is bought more than just for convenience.
