You will be asked to fill out a short survey about your family. Your child will be asked to take a survey about what they know about nutrition and we will measure their height and weight. We will also measure their skin carotenoids, which will help us learn if they are eating certain fruits and vegetables. This will be measured using a device called the Veggie Meter. The Veggie Meter shines a light onto the fingertip with an LED lightbulb to see the carotenoids in the skin. (Please see the flyer for more information.) This scan does not hurt, takes less than one minute, and can tell us a little bit about what your child is eating. This scan does not capture fingerprints.
