Interests: child nutrition (children’s: intake and activity behavior; diet quality; food preference; dietary composition especially protein and dietary fiber; appetite regulation; obesity; diabetes); US epidemiologic data
Dietary intake in children is not only associated with current and future health, but also with behavior and learning. Especially during early childhood throughout the school-age years, adequate food and nutrient intake to support brain development and function are critical. Furthermore, data on the effect of sugar intake on children’s activity levels, or their ability to focus on cognitive tasks, are mixed. More research in nutrition and children’s behavior is needed: How does behavior affect children’s nutrition? and how nutrition affect children’s behavior?
