Maternal to Adolescent Eating, Nutrition, And Development Lab

Welcome!

The maternal to adolescent eating, nutrition, and development in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Wyoming studies how behavior, family, and environment contribute to poor eating habits and excess weight gain during high development periods (early childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy).

Our goal is to uncover practical risk factors predicting excessive weight gain and develop individual level intervention and treatment strategies for excess weight gain and related health problems.
