Renn, Lauren; Rainville, Alice Jo – Journal of Child Nutrition & Management, 2019
Over 50 million Americans have a food allergy to one or more foods (Berdanier, 2017). Approximately 1 in 25 school-aged children are diagnosed with food allergies (Sicherer, Mahr, & The Section on Allergy and Immunology, 2010), while 25% of children may not experience a reaction until later in life (Leo & Clark, 2017). A food sensitivity…

Infants avoid touching plants. Here we examine for the first time whether infants are also reluctant to touch plant foods. We hypothesized that infants would avoid plant foods because food neophobia--the avoidance of novel foods--is particularly strong for fruits and vegetables. However, we predicted that infants would avoid processed plant foods…

Danible, Kaitlin; Panizza, Chloe; Boushey, Carol; Kerr, Deborah; Zhu, Fengqing; Banna, Jinan C. – Journal of Extension, 2021
The mobile food record™ (mFR™) is a novel app that allows for the tracking of individual food waste and addresses the limitations of current methods to accurately quantify food waste. Extension educators may use data from the mFR™ to create educational initiatives for food waste prevention and education that may be implemented in settings such as…
