Being in a school environment may help children curb weight gain, a report suggests.
Using data gathered by the National Center for Education Statistics from 5,380 5- and 6-year-olds in 310 elementary schools, researchers from Indiana University and Ohio State University found that growth in body-mass index was faster over the summer than during the school year. African-American and Hispanic children, and youngsters who were overweight at the start of kindergarten were particularly at risk for summer weight gain.
