Healthy Eating and Disease Prevention
For the week of September 15th, 2013
For many Minnesotans, maintaining a healthy weight is a major challenge. Two recent University of Minnesota studies are providing new insights on efforts to combat obesity. On this week’s Access Minnesota, University of Minnesota Family Medicine and Community Health Professor Jerica Berge discusses why parents should focus on healthy eating habits and not weight loss when talking with teens. And U of M Epidemiologist Andrew Odegaard tells us why skipping breakfast contributes to obesity and other serious health issues.
