According to Reuters, the study found that most of the children under observation took about 26 minutes to fall asleep and the more activity a child did during the day, the less time it took to fall asleep. Those children also stayed asleep for longer.
Researchers also said that for every hour a child spent being sedentary, it took them three minutes more to get to sleep.
The study appears in the the Archives of Disease in Childhood.
