The USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital is recruiting volunteers for a one-week study to test parenting practices that may help preschool children like and eat vegetables.  

Researchers are recruiting parents of children between 3 and 5 years of age for the study, in which parents will test two different parenting practices to help children like and eat vegetables, then answer questionnaires and be interviewed about their thoughts and feelings about the parenting practices.

Participants will be compensated for their time. For more information, call Courtney Ryan at 832-786-0763 or email
