(CBS) -  Too much television can increase your child’s risk of obesity, and doctors say a TV in the bedroom can make it even worse.

A new study finds kids with television in their rooms are three times more likely to be overweight.

Researchers say it’s likely the television keeps kids from getting enough sleep — which can also increase the risk of obesity.
