Big Benefits to A Little Extra Sleep for Kids

Posted: Updated:

A new study from the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics showed that there are significant benefits to a small amount of extra sleep.

The study reported that a delay of only 25 minutes in the start of a child's day brought a huge gain to the kids.

The students in the study got a better sleep the night before, were less tired during the day, had better moods and relied on caffeine less. All of these factors combined set kids up for better productivity and more learning throughout the day.

Experts also believe there is an even bigger bonus to a few extra minutes of shut-eye. The research showed that the improvement in all of those areas previously mentioned led to overall healthier kids.
