Obese Children and Vascular Health

Posted by Nancy in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

As per the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics “Food and Nutrition” (November/December), “the relationship between exercise and vascular function in overweight and obese children and adolescents was investigated in a meta-analysis published in the August issue of Pediatrics. Vascular function was found to be significantly impaired in overweight and obese participants compared to those of normal weight. Overweight or obese children and adolescents who performed circuit or aerobic exercises had significantly improved (normalized) endothelial function.”

Kids, its time to put on your exercise shoes to get your heart and blood pumping!
