16 Minutes of Exercise Separates Fit, Unfit Kids

from USA Today

Normal-weight children get 16 more minutes of physical activity a day than their obese peers, a new study shows. And overall, girls do 20 minutes less physical activity a day than boys.

"This is a huge wake-up call to society," says Donna Spruijt-Metz, the senior author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at the University of Southern California.
