19% of adolescent girls and 13% of boys do not eat breakfast, an unhealthy habit that occurs more in young people from more socioeconomically disadvantaged families, according to a study by the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) and the University of Vic (UVic-UCC) with 7,000 adolescents from all over Spain.
The authors of the work, Laura Esquius, Alicia Aguilar, Anna Bach and Marina Bosque, the four professors of the UOC’s Health Sciences Studies and researchers from the Foodlab group, have recalled that the first meal of the day “has an energy value fundamental, and even more so in periods of growth and learning such as adolescence “.
