home Mom. Now, no matter what the situation, your job impacts your family. And, when it

that you are create a fabulous home life. You buy healthy foods, prepare healthy meals,

And, all the effort is seldom acknowledged or complimented. But, your child is still
at risk of obesity. You may be asking why ? Well, join us for this episode of BETTER
BODY CHEMISTY TV, as we find out why being a working Mom puts your child at risk of childhood
obesity. And what you can do to mitigate that risk. Better Body Chemistry TV is brought
to you by Dr Sandy – a scientist turned gremlin buster, HELPING YOU, battle sugar gremlins,
heffa-lumps & other health horribles, through BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY.Remember, small things
can make a big difference to your health. Researchers from University of Urbana-Champaign,
asked 247 Moms of tots, attending day care facilities, exactly what was happening at
the home front every day and then, they correlated these findings with their child’s weight.
In the group of Moms surveyed, most of the Moms worked full time jobs, that is, they
spent more than 35 hours a week, working for THE MAN. The remaining Moms ranged from the
classic “stay at home” Mom, all the way through to Moms, working just under 35 hours
a week. Within the group of pre-schoolers, 17 % were overweight and 12 % were obese.
The researchers found all three groups of Moms were working hard, being Moms. In fact,
there was no difference in dietary habits , meal time routines, frequency of family
meals, time spent watching TV or physical activity . The only difference between the
three groups, was how long junior spent in bed. And, as it turned out, this mattered.
You see, working Moms are time crunched. To fit everything in, working Moms experience
LONGER DAYS. And kids of working moms, end up experiencing LONGER DAYS too. Sometimes,
it is an early start, to ensure Mom arrives on time for work. Sometimes, well it’s a
later bed time, because the evening rituals of making dinner and bathing are delayed.
The LONGER DAYS, mean SHORTER NIGHTS. And less sleep is the trigger for obesity. So
to protect your little one from “your job” – watch the length of their day. Now that
you’re aware, this is an issue, I am sure, you can find ways to adjust your routine,
so they get the longest night possible. And if you face serious BEDTIME RESISTANCE – it’s
not inevitable, it’s biology and it can be fixed. Click here to find out how. And
