Girls’ Health

By Jessica L. Tonn — September 20, 2005 1 min read

An abstract of the study, “The Relationship of Breakfast and Cereal Consumption to Nutrient Intake and Body Mass Index,” is posted by the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Girls who eat breakfast more regularly tend not to gain as much weight as girls who do not, a study published in the September issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found.

Of the more than 2,000 girls, ages 9 to 19, who participated in the study, those that consumed breakfast at least three days a week had lower body-mass indexes, a common measure of obesity, than those who did not eat breakfast on all or most days.

The study was supported by the National Institutes of Health, an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and General Mills Inc., the Minneapolis-based cereal and snack-food maker.
