Kids Breakfast and BMI Linked


Breakfast does a body good. A recent study shows kids who eat a bowl of cereal in the morning are less likely to be overweight. Researchers at "Dairy Max" found kids who ate cereal only half the time tended to be in the 95th percentile for body mass index, which is considered to be overweight. Kids who ate cereal everyday were in the 65th percentile, which is in the healthy weight range. The study is published in the "Journal of Academy Nutrition and Dietetics."
