A new research has revealed that pre-school children have better health by regularly sleeping on time, eating on time and being entertained at a certain time. They are also less likely to be obese. Lead author Sarah Anderson of Ohio State University in the US said, “This research provides more evidence that routines in pre-school age children are associated with better health development.” It also reduces the likelihood of these children becoming obese. ‘ The researchers evaluated the routines of 3000 children as young as three years old.
The researchers evaluated the routines of 3000 children as young as three years old.
Analyzed their time to sleep, time to eat, and their time watching TV or film (an hour or less). In this evaluation, the researchers compared two aspects of the children from the parent report. This included self-regulation and equal age. Anderson said, “We found that children who had difficulty in emotional regulation at the age of three were more likely to be obese at age 11.” Researchers found that children who did not go to bed daily on time were more likely to be obese at age 11. Children with premature sleep were more likely to be obese than those who slept on time. This danger was further increased in children who did not follow the rules of sleeping on time. There are many benefits of following a regular routine from a young age.
