Obese Kids Maintain Their Weight, Thanks to Dance Video

A dancing video game helped obese children to maintain their weight. This game also helped these children to bring down a few risk factors related to cardiac problems and// diabetes.

In West Virginia, a preliminary study was conducted among fifty obese children in the age group of 7-12 for a period of six months. Children chosen for this study were asked to play the game called the ‘Dance Dance Revolution’ at home for 30 minutes a day for five days a week. At the end of the study period, it was found that these children did not put on additional weight and risk factors for few diseases were also brought down.

This is very hopeful and promising especially when kids find sports and other activity boring and embarrassing. This study also revealed that most of the obese children were not too keen to take part in gym or other school activities. This research did not deal with the food intake of children.

Following the positive outcome of this study, West Virginia has planned to introduce this video game to all its public schools to fight obesity as it is becoming a serious health issue across the world.
