According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, our children are going to need to reduce their caloric intake by 41 calories a day to stop gaining weight as they grow up.
But good as this move would be, it would only stop our kids from getting heavier. To lower obesity rates to the halcyon 1970s rates (when just 5% of kids were overweight), today's kids would need to cut calories by 5% - which translates to 33 calories a day for preschoolers, 149 calories per day for grade-schoolers, and 177 calories a day for teens.
We wouldn't expect kids to eat perfectly all the time, right? So half hour of energetic playtime a day would provide an excellent safety net.
What do you think? Doable?
