Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accelerometer, average counts of dynamic acceleration (physical activity) [ Time Frame: 1 week at baseline and at 12 months ]
    Change in the children's physical activity levels with accelerometer


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Movement assessment battery for children (M-ABC-2) scores (motor performance) [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
    Change in M-ABC scores

  2. PedsQL Multidimensional Fatigue Scale scores (fatigue) [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
    Change in experienced fatigue

  3. Blood sugar [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
    Change in blood sugar

  4. Blood insulin [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
    Change in blood insulin
