    Children ate 18 percent more calories when they were given an entree that was more calorie dense, that is food that contained more calories for a given amount of food, according to a study by Jennifer Fisher at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Children's Nutrition Research Center in Houston, Texas, USA and colleagues. Similar to Adult Studies

    Adults eat a certain volume of foods regardless of calorie content

    This is similar to studies in adults which have found that people tend to eat a certain volume of food regardless of whether it is lower or higher in calories.

     

    Subjects

    Subjects: 53 children, 5-6 years-old

    The study involved 25 boys and 28 girls who were 5- to 6-years-old.
