Breakfast is an Important Meal, Especially for Teen Moms and Their Kids

Teen mothers who eat breakfast have healthier weights and snacking habits.  This may in turn influence healthy eating habits among their children.

Participants in a study were enrolled in the Parents as Teachers Teen Program and completed a seven-day recall of their breakfast, snack and beverage consumption. Almost half consumed breakfast fewer than two days per week.

According to Newswise:

“Those who ate breakfast six to seven days per week consumed 1,197 fewer kilocalories per week from sweet and salty snacks, 1,337 fewer kilocalories per week from sweetened drinks, and had a lower BMI compared to those who ate breakfast fewer than two days per week.”
