New research shows how sleep, physical activity and screen time impacts kid's cognition

Up North

New research out this week may prompt some parents to get their kids to sleep more, do more exercise and look away from their screens. Researchers at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Research Institute found children who get the recommended amount of all three have greater cognitive abilities. The results were published in The Lancet, Child and Adolescent Health journal. Up North speaks with Jeremy Walsh, lead author of the study and a former post-doctoral fellow at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
