Eating Ready-To-Eat Cereal For Breakfast Is Healthier For Adults Aged 19 To 50

June 3, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. scientists who analyzed data from a national nutrition survey involving more than 14,000 adults ages 19 to 70 found that eating breakfast, particularly a ready-to-eat (RTE) cereal breakfast, “may contribute to healthy aging through reduced risk of chronic disease”. The study found that RTE cereal – compared to “other breakfasts” or no breakfast – was associated with lower body weight, lower body mass index, reduced abdominal fat and fewer risk factors for metabolic syndrome among adults 19 to 50. The study, however, found that neither RTE cereal breakfasts or “other breakfasts” reduced the risk of being overweight or obese among those aged 51 to 70.
