We all know that sleep is a crucial and important part of our health, but it is essential for developing children. Kids today are sleeping 30-60 minutes less than they were 20 years ago. A recent study that followed over 1,000 babies and tracked their sleep scores and weight from birth, found that the kids who got poorer sleep had a higher body fat at age 7.
