An article in the journal Appetite (December 2003) described an experiment to determine the effect that breakfast meals have on school children. A sample of 29 children was tested on four successive days, having a different breakfast each day. The breakfast meals were
1. Cereal (Cheerios)
2. Cereal (Shreddies)
3. A glucose drink
4. No breakfast
The order of breakfast meals was randomly assigned. A computerized test of working memory was conducted prior to breakfast and again 2 hours later. The decrease in scores was recorded. Do these data allow us to infer that there are differences in the decrease depending on the type of breakfast?
