Leslie Killeen On-Air with Steve Adubato

Last updated: Apr 26, 2019


Kids and teens age 8 to 18 spend an average of more than seven hours a day looking at screens, says the American Heart Association. Research has linked screen time with an increased amount of sedentary behavior in children and teens. While there is no long-term evidence yet to link screen time to an increased risk of health conditions like cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol, there is mounting evidence that it is associated with obesity. That’s just one of the timely child nutrition topics that SMG’s Leslie Killeen, MS, RD, CDE, Registered Dietitian and Diabetes Educator,  discussed as a guest on “One-on-One with Steve Adubato.” Experienced in childhood and adolescent weight management and in Pediatric Endocrinology, Leslie also discussed the nutrition needs of children with autism, as well as children’s food allergies and the latest guidelines on introducing kids to peanuts and other common food allergens.
