  What makes kids eat?

  Have you ever wondered why you eat the foods you eat?

  This study will look at hunger and children’s preferences for different snack foods. Children will taste some snacks, report how much   they like them, and then answer some questions about themselves and their hunger. Parents will also complete questionnaires about   their child and their child’s food preferences.

We are interested in learning about influences upon eating. We hope to better understand how and when children develop eating behaviors that we see in adulthood. 

This study is a collaboration between Randi Proffitt Leyva & Sarah Hill, Texas Christian University (r.proffittleyva@tcu.edu ), and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
