Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: The Satiating Effect of Eggs in Children

Further study details as provided by Nikhil Dhurandhar, Pennington Biomedical Research Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lunch time food intake [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Measure calories consumed at lunch time.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Analog Scale Ratings [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    They will be asked to rate their feelings of hunger and fullness periodically using visual analog scales. The Egg Breakfast is expected to increase satiety scores, decrease hunger and the lunch time food intake, compared to the Bagel Breakfast.

  • Blood appetite hormone [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    We expect that Peptide YY (PYY) and Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP1) levels will rise higher and remain elevated after the Egg Breakfast, and the acylated ghrelin levels will rise higher between the Bagle Breakfast and lunch time.
