Breakfast, Cognition, and School Learning. Napa, CA, USA, 1995/08/28.
In this supplement. the papers presented at the International Symposium on Breakfast and Performance in Napa.
CA in 1995 are summarized and integrated with data published since that time.
In particular. the focus is on issues of research design. measurements. mechanisms. potential effect modifiers (eg, age), and relevance for public policy.
No definitive conclusions can be drawn from the existing data on either the long-and short-term benefits of breakfast on cognition and school learning or the mechanisms that mediate this relation.
The pooled data suggest that omitting breakfast interferes with cognition and learning. an effect that is more pronounced in nutritionally at-risk children than in well-nourished children.
At the very least. breakfast consumption improves school attendance and enhances the quality of the students'diets.
