TV viewing a cause for children obesity?

Talking about foundation of lifestyle behaviours being established as early as pre-school, a study from the University of Sydney School of Public Health found that nearly half of obese children ate dinner in front of the TV more than three times a week. The study also showed not many parents realise their children have a weight problem.

Seventy percent of parents of overweight kindergarten children thought their child was the 'right weight' and 30 percent of the parents of obese children thought their child was the right weight.
The researchers concluded that the foundation for many lifestyle behaviours is already established by the time children enter school.
