9-Aa: What Did You Eat At School Today? the Influence of Preschool on Children’S Food Consumption

This observational study shows significant differences across classrooms in the consumption of condiments, vegetables, grain, and protein in publicly funded preschools. We theorize several possible mediators of this “classroom effect” on consumption. This research aids in the understanding of food socialization and has public policy implications for early childhood programs.
