Child development faculty receive grant from the U's Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives Institute

Stephanie CarlsonMichael GeorgieffStephanie Carlson, associate professor in the Institute of Child Development, Michael Georgieff, professor in pediatrics and the Institute of Child Development and director of the Center for Neurobehavioral Development, Ellen Demerath, associate professor in the School of Public Health, and Danielle Beck, assistant professor at Simpson University, have been awarded a grant from the U's Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives Institute. They will be examining how mothers perceive their babies' hunger and satiety and how that might influence child growth and weight status, especially in early childhood. Because the largest increases in obesity over the last 30 years have occurred in children, the research team aims to understand how parents' attributes and attitudes are passed on.
