Higher risk of obesity in children is there when they are exposed to morning light indoor or outdoor, including light given off by tablets, mobile phones, night lights, and television.

Researchers studied 48 children aged three to five from six Brisbane childcare centres over a two week period, measuring each child’s sleep, activity and light exposure along with their height and weight to calculate their body mass index (BMI).

“We found moderate intensity light exposure earlier in the day was associated with increased BMI while children who received their biggest dose of light – outdoors and indoors – in the afternoon were slimmer,” said Cassandra Pattinson, a PhD student at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
