Does your family have trouble with fussy eaters? Are you tired of dinner table arguments? Or do you just wish your children would eat more fruit and vegetables?

We are developing a game which we think could help.

A brief introduction to our research, filmed by Reuters UK

This webpage is part of a study from the University of Exeter’s Psychology Department. At the moment, we’re working on a simple computer game that we think will help children make healthier snack choices.

To develop the game, we need the public’s help.

In order to make the game as effective as possible, we need participants to take part in our research. Our current research project involves answering a few questions about your child's favourite foods, playing a few short games and providing some feedback about your experiences with the games. The entire study should take around 15 minutes in total.

We’re welcoming families with children aged 4-12 years old to take part in this study. This is based on the idea that activities that families do together can sometimes be more successful.

Please note - this project must be carried out on a device with a keyboard. The project is not yet touchscreen compatible and we apologise for any inconvenience.
