Data from 12,642 students from fifth to 10th grades included in the Health Behavior in School-Aged Children Study showed that those who watch television were more likely to eat junk food and fast food, more likely to skip breakfast and less likely to eat fruits and vegetables daily. The study in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine also found that younger students, girls and white students were more likely to eat fruits and vegetables compared with older students, boys, and black and Hispanic students.
