A new study published in the British Medical Journal compared the energy expenditure of kids playing sedentary video games with the energy expended while playing active Wii games. The study found that active Wii games like bowling and boxing require more energy, but not as much energy as playing the real sports they depict. More importantly, the energy required to play the Wii isn’t enough to contribute to the recommended daily allowance of exercise for children.
