Is time-restricted eating okay for kids?

Parent Episode: Dr. Satchin Panda on Practical Implementation of Time-Restricted Eating & Shift Work Strategies

The suprachiasmatic nucleus – the region of the brain that controls the body's master clock – is not fully developed in infants. But as a child reaches toddlerhood and can begin to sleep long periods overnight, implementing regular eating and sleeping patterns is important in order to set the child up for optimal health in later life. In this clip, Dr. Satchin Panda describes the maturation schedule of the body's circadian clocks and makes recommendations about when to start time-restricted eating in children.
