Kids who ride home from school — whether in a car or on a bus — eat more snacks and candy during that window of opportunity than those who get home under their own steam, according to a new U.S. study. The researchers thought that kids who walk or bike to and from school might have more chances to buy junk foods along the way, but found it was the "passive commuters" who rode to or from school that ate more snacks. Dr. Kristine Madsen at the University of California, Berkley School of Public Health, who led the study of fourth- and fifth-graders, said her team was glad to find that the "active commuters" were not buying more junk food on their way home. more
