Energy and appetite regulation in children and adolescents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The potential impact of dietary manipulations on appetite regulation, satiety and energy intake control in young people is reviewed. Studies have revealed that manipulating timings between snacks and subsequent meals in young people might provide an effective and simple means of reducing subsequent food consumption. The majority of cross-sectional data have reported significant inverse relationships between increased milk and milk product consumption and reductions in adiposity (body mass and percentage body fat) in children and adolescent populations. Data obtained from the most recent National Diet and Nutrition Survey highlight that on average, that daily consumption of milk and milk products for adolescent girls (11-18y) decreased from 136 g/d in 1997 to 107g g/d in 2008/09. Fruit-based drinks have a differential impact on subsequent food intake when compared to the consumption of milk-based products in young children.
