Parents and Their Children Can Earn $500 for Participating in Nutrition Study

The Department of Food Science at the University of Arkansas is recruiting families (defined as at least one parent/guardian) with at least one overweight/obese child between the ages of 6-12 to participate in a nutrition study. In addition, no family members can have food allergies or food intolerances. Participants will receive $500 cash compensation. Participants will receive all supplies and a monthly grocery stipend.

The study involves six visits to the U of A and the Food Science Department over a 12- to 14-week period and measurements of the following: height, weight, waist-to-hip ratio, blood collection via intravenous puncture and 24-hour food intake records. The study may also require DXA for body composition for children.

Families will be required to complete the study in full in order to receive compensation. 

For more information, please contact the Baum Lab at baumlab@uark.edu to schedule a phone screening.
