And now some good news about teens. That's right, teens. Seems more and more teenagers in the U.S. are going the healthy route by eating better and exercising more. Here's Holly Firfer with today's Health Minute. Today's teens are healthier. That's according to a new report out of next month's Journal of Pediatrics. Researchers found between 2001 and 2009, U.S. adolescents exercised more, ate fewer sweets, consumed more fruits and veggies, ate breakfast more often, and spent less time on the couch watching TV. All good ways to stay healthy. Authors of the study said these changes in teen attitudes may also explain why childhood obesity rates are leveling off. For the study, investigators surveyed more than 9,000 students in grades six through 10, charting their body mass indexes as well as their life habits. The found the average BMI percentile increased from 2001 to 2006, but there were no major changes in teen BMI rates after 2006. Researchers also found, boys reported they were more involved in physical activity than girls but also were more likely to watch TV or play video games. Girls ate more veggies and fruits than boys, but they also ate more sugary items and fewer breakfasts. Because of the different gender attitudes, the study authors suggested pediatricians provide tailored advice for boys and girls when it comes to talking about healthier lifestyles.
