“Using stand/sit desks in schools is a cost-effective way to increase caloric expenditure in children. As we focus on increasing physical activity and obesity prevention, early research indicates that giving students the opportunity to stand and move more increases their calories used by 17 percent, and more—32 percent—for children who are heavier. Multiplied over days, weeks, and months, these extra calories burned may be a significant step in keeping children at a healthy weight.”
