Exercise video games may add to kids’ activity: study
By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Giving children active video games to play while they follow a weight management program boosts their moderate and vigorous activity levels, according to a new study. Kids who played the active video games also lost more weight than children who only followed the weight management program. Traditionally, studies have examined what harms may come from children spending long hours sitting and playing video games. “We thought – if you received active games – maybe we can turn this lemon into lemonade,” Dr. Deneen Vojta told Reuters Health.
