fittforlife.com Studies on Children 1 to 2 Years of Age

Children. McConahy et al. conducted a study that compared data from the Continuing Survey of Food Intake of Individuals (CSFII 1994 -1996, 1998) and the Nationwide Food Consumption Survey (1977-1978) of children 1 to 2 years of age. They assessed portion size z-scores and related it to body weight and energy intake. Average portion size z-scores were positively related to both body weight and energy intake, but there were no differences in number of eating occasions or number of foods eaten. The authors concluded that children may adjust their food intake based on portion sizes throughout the day to sustain their energy intake.Children.
