When researchers from the East Finland University monitored over 4,000 children from the time their mothers were pregnant through to the age of 16, they found that those with a routine meal and snack pattern that included breakfast were less likely to be overweight. Sixteen year olds who regularly ate three meals and two snacks per day had a lower body mass index (BMI) than those with erratic eating patterns, and those who skipped breakfast.
