The Children's Mealtime Study located at the E.K. Shriver Center/UMass Medical School is looking for typically developing children ages 3-8 to participate in a research study on children's eating patterns, mealtime behaviors, and parent feeding practices.
The study involves one 2-3 hour visit at a UMass Medical School-affiliated site and parents complete a 3-day food record at home. During the visit children and parents are weighed and measured and parents complete a series of questionnaires on child eating patterns, behaviors, and their own feeding practices. Parents also receive training on keeping a food record at home to record what their child eats over three days. Children with intellectual/developmental delays will receive cognitive testing and parents will answer additional questions about children's developmental, adaptive, and social behavior.
Parents will receive up to $85 compensation in the form of a gift cards; children will receive a $15 gift card for their participation.
