In a nutshell: This paper looked at the possible links between the snack consumption patterns of a child and their social network. It was found that children who ate snacks seemed to be part of more numerous social networks, many of which were associated with sporting activities. Therefore, the authors suggested that these were positive relationships and noted no increase in overweight or obesity in the study population in relation to snack consumption.
