Snacking on raisins lowers food intake in kids
Washington: A new study has found that after-school snack of raisins and grapes lowers food intake in young children.
The new study analyzed the caloric intake of 26 eight- to 11-year-old normal weight children who were given either raisins, grapes, potato chips, and chocolate chip cookies as a snack.
They were allowed to eat until comfortably full.
The researchers found that raisins and grapes led to lower cumulative food intake, while the cookies increased cumulative food intake compared to the other snacks.
In addition to promoting a feeling of fullness, raisins provide valuable nutrients for children such as fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and iron.
The findings are published in the Journal of Food Science.
