Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

The Mealtime PREP intervention shows promise to improve dietary variety and mealtime behaviors and lower risk of nutritional deficiency in toddlers with sensory food aversions. Moderate to large effect sizes were observed in a small sample of 11 families trained to deliver this intervention in the home.
