Abstract

Our research aims to identify the factors that go into the dynamic of mealtime for children and how these factors affect health outcomes outside the nutrient composition of the meal itself. Our survey included questions that would help us understand what dynamics are present during the time when children are eating their meals at home, and if these factors directly or indirectly affect the BMI of the child. Our strongest outcome is the R-values which indicate room for further collaborative research in this growing area of nutrition.
