512 Finnish girls and boys 6 to 8 years of age participated in the Physical Activity and Nutrition in Children (PANIC) Study. The study included assessment of protein profile, waist measurement, BP, fasting serum insulin and fasting plasma glucose. Skipping meals, emotional overeating and poor eating pattern may lead to body weight and body adiposity. Among children, only minority ate vegetables, fruit and berries, some had sugary drinks daily; saturated fat, sucrose and salt were higher and the intakes of dietary food is important.
Overweight and cardio-metabolic diseases already in childhood can be prevented by sticking to regular meals.
