Does a late dinner lead to Childhood Obesity?

Here is an interesting story reported by

Researchers at King’s College in London have not been able to establish a significant link between eating dinner after 8pm and obesity in children. These findings contradict published research that believes circadian rhythms are impacted by meal times, which interfere with metabolic processes within the body.

The World Health Organisation (WHO), estimates of the number of overweight infants and children in the WHO European Region rose steadily from 1990 to 2008.

This is important because more than 60% of children who are overweight before hitting puberty will be overweight in early adulthood.  That’s a crazy high number!

Research had currently suggested that eating late dinners could contribute to obesity in adults and children – until now.
