When to Wonder: Picky Eating app helps parents see their child in a new way. Children learn through play, and find it easier to share thoughts and feelings when they are having fun. So WonderLab from NYU Langone Health’s Department of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry created games to help them share their yums and yucks, and their feelings about food.
Parents like fun, too! When parents play, they and their child can compare points of views. Parents can also tell the researchers more about eating, mealtimes, and concerns like anxiety and tantrums. The more the researchers learn about families and children around the world, the more the app can tailor feedback and strategies for the users.
