Examining mealtime interactions of toddlers as predictors of weight gain at 36 months of age

This NIH funded study examines mealtime interactions of 18 and 24-month children to determine the extent to which how well a caregiver responds to child feeding cues, along with a number of other maternal and child characteristics, predicts weight gain trajectories of children at 36 months. This study is being conducted with collaborators at California Polytechnical Institute and Temple University. A total of 165 infant-caregiver dyads have been enrolled across the two sites.
