"Our results suggest that although snack foods may have low nutritional value, they were not an important independent determinant of weight gain among children and adolescents," Harvard researchers conclude in a new study.
The study analyzed data from 8,203 girls and 6,774 boys, who were 9- to 14-years-old in 1996, who completed at least two questionnaires between 1996 and 1999.
