On the morning of each of the 5 study sessions, your child will arrive at the lab after a 12-hour overnight fast. Your child will be given a breakfast that contains a baked potato, mashed potatoes, French fries, or white bread. Your child will be asked to consume each of these breakfast options, or skip breakfast. Your child will be asked to complete subjective ratings on appetite and well-being at seven time-points throughout each session, followed by a lunch 2 hours after breakfast. Lastly, you will complete a food record describing what your child ate for the rest of the day of the study session.
