Melbourne, Apr 23 : It takes only few minutes for an eight-year-old to scoff down a small packet of chips. But guess how much exercise they''d have to do to work it off? Well, according to a new study, an hour.
The news is worse for children who make a meal of a burger, hot chips and a soft drink.
To use up that much energy, the Children''s Nutrition Research Centre has found an eight-year-old would need to spend nearly five hours running around or three hours on a bike.
