Healthier Teens Eat Breakfast

Teens: Eat breakfast and don't get fat

MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) -- Moms always advise eating breakfast, but a U.S. study proves skipping breakfast is unhealthy and is is linked to teen obesity.

University of Minnesota School of Public Health researchers examined the association between breakfast frequency and five-year body weight change in more than 2,200 adolescents.

The researchers find teens who eat breakfast daily have a healthier diet overall and are more physically active than teens who skip breakfast. Five years later, compared to breakfast skippers, the breakfast eaters have gained less weight.

"Although adolescents may think that skipping breakfast seems like a good way to save on calories, findings suggest the opposite," principal investigator Dianne Neumark-Sztainer says in a statement. "Eating a healthy breakfast may help adolescents avoid overeating later in the day and disrupt unhealthy eating patterns, such as not eating early in the day and eating a lot late in the evening."

It is estimated that between 12 percent and 24 percent of U.S. children and adolescents regularly skip breakfast, and this percentage increases with age, Neumark-Sztainer says.
