Appetite Traits, Eating, and Self-Regulation with Alison Miller

Developmental psychologist Dr. Alison Miller discusses appetite traits, executive functioning, stress, and eating behaviors in children.

We’re talking about appetite traits in children on the podcast.

Several factors play a role in why children eat the way they do. These include temperament, appetitive traits, self-regulation, food responsiveness, satiety responsiveness, and enjoyment of food.

Alison Miller, Ph.D. helps us understand these and gives tips on identifying a child’s eating temperament, and how we can help improve their eating behaviors.

As parents, caretakers, and healthcare professionals, learning about appetite traits and other contributors to eating behavior can help us understand our children better, accommodate their needs, and guide us to create more positive and healthy eating experiences for them.
