Research group of America found that children have stronger cravings for sweet and salty foods than adults. The results of the study before been published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE.
That's what scientists say. After processing the information obtained from the stories of children about their favorite products, the experts found that children aged 5 to 10 years have an increased tendency to consume large quantities of sweet and salty. Such foods children consume with a renewed enthusiasm. Only the study involved 108 children.
Interestingly, if the child was fond of salty foods, with no less force he was fond of sweets.
The information obtained will help scientists to understand the processes associated with metabolism in adults and children. In the future it is possible to develop new programs in the fight against excess weight, based on the results of the study.
