We are looking for children who will be willing to eat about a half a cup of this food product every day for 4 weeks. And we are asking that parents/guardians bring their children to the UC Davis campus for 3 study visits each lasting about 2-3 hours.
To see if your child qualifies for the study, your child must be willing to: • Eat about half a cup of this food product every day for 4 weeks. • Provide 2 blood and urine samples that are 4 weeks apart • Have us measure blood flow in their fingertip using a special finger probe
We are also seeking children who in addition to the above are willing to provide 2 stool and saliva samples (this is optional and not required for study participation).
We will also provide your child with nutrition education, and will ask them to wear a personal physical activity monitor every day during waking hours.
If your child is 9- 13 years old, please call to see if your child qualifies. We will ask you questions about your child’s overall health. Healthy children who weigh at least 51 lbs., are not taking prescription medications other than for asthma and allergies, qualify for a screening.
