The report was published in the Feb. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
"Parents and caregivers need to limit tech time computers, iPads, texting, TV and let kids be kids, running around playing," she said.
"In adults, this difference is associated with an about 15 percent increased relative risk of premature death," Ekelund said.
However, the positive benefits of exercise don't necessarily counteract the harmful effects of a couch potato lifestyle, he said. "There may be specific sedentary behaviors, such as TV viewing, that impose health risks as TV viewing is linked to other unhealthy behaviors [such as snacking]. Therefore, limiting TV time is still important for children's health and well being," Ekelund said.
Any Exercise Benefits Kids
Boys and girls who exercised more than 35 minutes a day had lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar, lower triglycerides and were thinner than children who exercised less than 18 minutes a day, Ekelund's group noted.
Even children who are not cut out for competitive sports, have the innate need to be physically active, Heller said.
Average waist size differed by more than two inches between the most active and least active children and teens. And those with the largest waist size at the study's start were the least active at two years' follow up.

"We demonstrated that higher levels of physical activity of at least moderate intensity equal to brisk walking are associated with [improving] many cardiovascular disease risk factors, regardless of the amount of time these children spent sedentary," he said.
Grown ups must get involved too, Heller said. "They can jump rope, play tag and throw the Frisbee with the children. Kids will do better in school, develop social skills, enhance coordination, [and] be happier and healthier for it.".
Overall, three quarters of the children were of normal weight, 18 percent were overweight and 7 percent were obese. They spent an average of 30 minutes per day in some form of moderate to vigorous exercise and 354 minutes a day or nearly six hours Nike Shoes On Sale Amazon
Samantha Heller, an exercise physiologist and clinical nutrition coordinator of the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital in Derby, Conn., said that "there is absolutely no reason for our children to be fat, sedentary and at risk for cardiovascular disease."
