The researchers are looking for healthy kids age 9-11 who do not have a history of any chronic diseases, eating disorders, or cognitive disorders; have no food allergies or dietary restrictions; are not currently taking medications known to alter appetite, body weight, or brain response; and have no MRI contraindications.
