J Pediatr Psychol. 2008 Nov-Dec; 33(10):1100-7.JP

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To assess the association between hours of TV viewing and the trajectory of BMI growth from Kindergarten to Grade 5 among a national longitudinal cohort of 7,334 US children.

METHODS

Multilevel growth curve modeling was used to estimate children's BMI growth trajectories as a function of hours of TV viewing over time while controlling for gender, race/ethnicity, SES, birth weight, and baseline age.

RESULTS

Hours of TV viewing were significantly positively associated with the acceleration of BMI growth from Kindergarten to Grade 5.

CONCLUSIONS

Hours spent watching TV may be contributing to the recent dramatic increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children.
