We are looking for families with at least one child aged between 8 months - 5 years to participate in our study funded by BBSRC DRINC which aims to identify commonly consumed food items and snacks.

You will be asked to complete two questionnaires, a 4-day food diary, and answer some interview questions for which you will receive a £20 gift voucher.

The study also involves two observations:

  • a compact size camera kit will be set up in your kitchen and dining room to film a breakfast, dinner and snacks time
  • a shopping visit to your usual supermarket will also be filmed: for this part of the study you will receive a £30 gift voucher.

The study has been approved by the University of Leeds ethics committee (PVAR 15-096). Participation is entirely voluntary and all information provided will remain strictly confidential. You and your child can withdraw at any point in the study without giving a reason.

If you would like further information or are interested in taking part in the study, please contact: Marjan Vazirian, (School of Design).
