Brief Blurb about Your Research
Which facets of impulsivity differentiate primary school children at high-risk of developing problematic eating from low-risk peers? This project will examine the relationship between reward sensitivity, impulsivity and food addiction in children. This study will involve parents of primary school-aged children (ages 4-12) completing various measures on personality, eating behaviour, food preferences, parenting style, degree of conflict and cohesion and demographic information.
We are looking to recruit Australian adults over the age of 18. Participants who identify as either 1) not having children in the appropriate age range, or 2) reside overseas will form the prevalence data for the relationship between food addiction and reward sensitivity and impulsivity. Australian parents with children aged 4-12 years are the primary analysis group.
