The Effect of Dairy and Non-dairy Snacks on Food Intake, Subjective Appetite in Children

2015-06-30 07:53:21 | BioPortfolio


Dairy products have a potential to be healthy snack foods for children and are provided in a variety of food matrices. For instance, milk represents a fluid product, yogurt can be classified as a semi-solid food, and finally cheese is the example of the solid food. This experiment is aimed to examine the effect of dairy products with different food matrices on satiety and food intake in children. Dairy products will be compared with other non-dairy snacks popular among children including cookies and potato chips.

Urban-rural difference in the determinants of dietary and energy intake patterns: A case study in West Java, Indonesia.

Few studies have explored differences in the determinants of individual dietary/energy intake patterns between urban and rural areas.

Accounting for misreporting when comparing energy intake across time in Canada.

Estimates of energy intake are lower in 2015 compared with 2004. The difference observed is too large to be explained by a change in energy requirements or physical activity at the population level. S...

Natural dietary products and their effects on appetite control.

Natural dietary products have been thoroughly studied for their effects of anti-adipogenesis to prevent and treat obesity for decades. Nevertheless, in the past few years appetite control for the trea...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The lack of sufficient energy or protein to meet the body's metabolic demands, as a result of either an inadequate dietary intake of protein, intake of poor quality dietary protein, increased demands due to disease, or increased nutrient losses.

A pattern of food consumption adopted mainly by the people of North America and Western Europe. It is mainly characterized by high intake of MEAT, processed grains, DIETARY SUGARS, DAIRY PRODUCTS, and DIETARY FATS.

An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from excessive intake of nutrients. Generally, overnutrition generates an energy imbalance between food consumption and energy expenditure leading to disorders such as OBESITY.

Total number of calories taken in daily whether ingested or by parenteral routes.

A disorder due to the deposition of hemosiderin in the parenchymal cells, causing tissue damage and dysfunction of the liver, pancreas, heart, and pituitary. Full development of the disease in women is restricted by menstruation, pregnancy, and lower dietary intake of iron. Acquired hemochromatosis may be the result of blood transfusions, excessive dietary iron, or secondary to other disease. Idiopathic or genetic hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder of metabolism associated with a gene tightly linked to the A locus of the HLA complex on chromosome 6.
