The study's lead author, Jean Skinner, PhD, professor emeritus at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, recommends chil- dren be encouraged to: 1) regularly eat calcium-rich foods, such as lowfat milk and yogurt; 2) increase phys- ical activity; and 3) restrict intake of carbonated soft drinks and other low-nutri- ent beverages. This study is an exten- sion of earlier research pub- lished by the same group, and one of the first to direct- ly examine the relationship between dietary calcium intake and body fatness in children. Results suggest that dietary calcium may play a role in preventing childhood obesity. "Even a slight decrease in body fat during childhood may reduce the risk of obesity in later childhood, adolescence and adulthood," said Dr. Skinner. "Parents, educators and health professionals can help children develop healthy lifestyle habits early by teaching them to choose and enjoy nutrient-rich foods like dairy more often." The longitudinal study looked at 52 children, from age 2 to age 8, and their mothers. Results showed that dietary calcium and polyunsaturated fat intake were associated with a lower percentage of body fat, while female gender and sedentary activity were among the fac- tors associated with a higher percentage of body fat. Milk and other dairy products were the main sources of dietary calcium in the study, Dr. J. R. Klaassen with milk alone accounting for 50 percent of the total calcium intake. 'Fhis study reinforces the importance of parents as role models when it comes to developing healthy habits. Morns and dads who drink milk and eat yogurt have kids who drink milk and eat yogurt," said Melissa Hooper, registered dietitian with the Midwest Dairy Council. "Getting three servings of calcium-rich foods is as easy as a glass of milk, a container of yogurt and a slice of lowfat cheese. Today it's easier for parents to make healthy snack options available to their children." A commentary in the same issue by Connie Weaver, PhD, professor of food and nutrition at Purdue University, and Carol Boushey, PhD, MPH, RD, assistant professor of food and nutrition, Purdue University, supports the "incorporation of lowfat cal- cium-rich foods such as skim milk and yogurt in the diets of children" to reduce body fatness. The dairy case has something for everyone, from fat-free to reduced-fat varieties, to meet all taste preferences and nutritional goals. Convenient, healthy options are plentiful and include yogurt, string cheese, smoothies and lowfat flavored milks in grab-and- go-containers.
