Nutrition research study looking for children with intellectual/developmental delays ages 3-8

The purpose of the Children’s Mealtime Study is to learn about the eating patterns, mealtime behaviors, and parent feeding practices of children ages 3-8 years who are either typically developing or have an intellectual/developmental delay. 


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.
