Poor breakfast during childhood linked to metabolic syndrome in adulthood

 

It is often said that breakfast is important for our health and a study conducted by Umeå University, published in Public Health Nutrition supports this claim. The study revealed that adolescents who ate poor breakfasts displayed a higher incidence of metabolic syndrome 27 years later, compared with those who ate more substantial breakfasts.
