Comparing preschoolers who run around all day playing hide and seek/tag/whatever, to an adult with a desk job, to a 150 kg linebacker who trains mainly to block and only be active for 30 seconds tops before a break in play.... is not very useful. Especially when comparing children to adults in a country where obesity is epidemic, and adults are sedentary.
