Eating breakfast with parents is linked with positive body image for teenagers

Source: University of Missouri-Columbia

A new study says consistently eating breakfast as a family might promote positive body image for children and adolescents.

  • The researchers found that eating breakfast during the week more frequently was associated with positive body image.

  • Just over half of the sample reported eating breakfast five days a week; however, nearly 17 percent reported never eating breakfast.

  • More than 30 percent reported eating breakfast fewer than five times a week.

  • The researchers also found that boys were more likely to eat breakfast than girls.

  • Additionally, the researchers found that children were much more likely to have a positive body image if they regularly ate breakfast with a parent.
