Parental feeding behaviours are considered major influences on children's eating behaviour. However, many questionnaire studies of feeding neglect subtle distinctions between specific feeding strategies and practices in favour of eliciting general feeding goals, and do not take account of the context provided by parents' motivations. These factors may be(More)
Bootstrap resampling is an extremely practical and effective way of studying the distributional properties of simulation output when this is subject to random variation. The purpose of this paper is to show that many problems of sensitivity analysis (SA) and validation can be very simply handled by this method. We consider classical non-parametric version(More)
The output from simulation factorial experiments can be complex and may not be amenable to standard methods of estimation like ANOVA. Two particular difficulties are: (i) the simulation output may not satisfy normality assumptions, and (ii) there may be differences in output at different factor combinations, but these are not simply differences in means.(More)
Children's appetitive characteristics measured by parent-report questionnaires are reliably associated with body weight, as well as behavioral tests of appetite, but relatively little is known about relationships with food choice. As part of a larger preloading study, we served 4-5year olds from primary school classes five school lunches at which they were(More)
