A new study published in Pediatrics proves the point of importance of sleep especially in childhood.
Having not enough sleep leads to unhealthy weight gains. That, in turn, ends up in one or several metabolic diseases impairing a child for the rest of his or her life.
The crucial point is that don't wait until your child grows up to enforce bed time. Do it right now, today, to eliminate one more precursor to obesity.
It takes so many variables to make the daily life flow. At times, it is unbelievable what we need to pay attention to. Sleep is one of them. Who would think that not having enough sleep would lead to serious health challenges later in life? Only studies could really prove it and show us a better way to deal with situations like that.
Here's a reference to the study with more details on how lack of sleep effects little children, i.e., leading to obesity.
