Eat Your Breakfast!

A new study from the University of Essex has drawn a link between child obesity and breakfast - basically, the researchers concluded that those children who skip breakfast before going to school were more likely to be obese.

The research has been published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, under the snappy title of 'Associations between habitual school-day breakfast consumption, body mass index, physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness in English schoolchildren.' UCB students can access this article in full via the Gale service in Athens.
