Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Thus, to accustom children to a regular breakfast consumption, and to maintain such behavior throughout the life-span, may have a significant health impact. Strategies to implement this dietary habit should be developed, as well as knowledge of the metabolic impact of different breakfast types according to local traditions and genetic background.
