Sweetness preferences in 1-year-old children who fail to thrive
TLDR
The hedonic response of children of this age to sweet tastes is confirmed, and it is shown that children who fail to thrive in infancy respond in the same way as control children.
Feeding and failure to thrive in early infancy
TLDR
The aims of this thesis were the early identification of cases of non organic failure to thrive in a community based study and of randomly selected controls and to investigate the early feeding behaviour of the case and control infants.
The Gateshead Millennium Baby Study: A Prospective Study of Feeding and Growth
TLDR
The overall result is a unique longitudinal dataset of early feeding patterns and maternal characteristics from birth which will form the basis of further investigation and analysis of the cohort.
PARENT-OFFSPRING CONFLICT THEORY, COSTLY BEGGING BEHAVIOR, SIGNALING OF NUTRITIONAL NEED, AND DIFFERENTIAL WEIGHT GAIN IN EARLY LIFE
TLDR
The role of signaling in nutritional demand is examined in the context of three common health problems that have traditionally been assumed to have physiological rather than behavioral causes: excess weight gain, failure to thrive, and colic.
