A new study says daycare may have a negative impact on children’s waistlines. Researchers at the University of Montreal find kids who attend a daycare between age one and four are 65% more likely to be overweight as they get older than those who stay at home with parents. Experts suspect the reasons may be unhealthy group snacks or less physical activity. The results are published in the Journal of Pediatrics.
