It’s being called the "Quarantine 15" online — people poking fun at gaining weight while staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Is it really a problem? Or does eating help cope with stress? And what about for kids? Public health researchers warn that COVID-19 related school closures will double out-of-school time this year, raising concerns about weight gain associated with summer recess for children.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Donald Hensrud, director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, discusses tips for healthy eating and exercising while staying at home.
