Regular bedtimes and adequate sleep during childhood may contribute toward a healthy weight in the teen years, a new study finds.
The study included nearly 2,200 children in which one-third of them had consistent, age-appropriate bedtimes between ages 5 and 9, according to their mothers.
According to the Penn State study, compared to that group, those who had no bedtime routine at age 9 got less sleep and had a higher body mass index (an estimate of body fat based on height and weight) at age 15.
