Has the Outcome Been Measured?

I’ve been reading so many peer-reviewed articles lately and looking at outcome measures (e.g. screening mammography has been shown to reduce breast cancer deaths) that the other night when a public health advertisement came on that claimed children function better when they’ve eaten breakfast, but a proportion of children don’t eat breakfast.  Therefore make your kid breakfast because they will then perform better.  I blurted out, “But has breakfast actually been shown to increase subsequent performance outcomes?” Daniel started laughing, “So you’re going to argue against giving children breakfast?”

Well somebody did a thesis on it.
