Hey Kids! Lose Weight While You Sleep!

A study published in the November issue of Pediatrics found that getting more sleep can stop children from getting fat. Apparently every additional hour of sleep a third-grader gets reduces their chances of ending up an obese sixth-grader by 40%. And no, three additional hours won’t mean they’ll be skinny. As a side benefit, that same hour of extra sleep each night will make them less likely to fall asleep in class, help them be more alert so they won’t always be the first one to get hit in the head playing dodgeball, and will put their parents in a much better mood because they’ll actually get some quiet time in the evening. The end. Now go to sleep.
