The SICS Seminars: The role of eating self-regulation in human health and development

Eating behaviours play an important role in our health and well-being. Eating is a process that integrates biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors to support physical and mental health. As with many other complex behaviours, the ability to regulate food intake develops in the context of our early caregiving environment.

In this talk, Dr Keri McCrickerd will present research on how early life experiences shape children’s eating behaviours in ways that can make it easier or harder to regulate intake for optimal health and well-being. She will share recent research efforts to prevent childhood obesity by cultivating eating self-regulation skills early in life and consider whether focusing on ‘food as nutrition’ underestimates the role eating can play in building important social-emotional competencies during childhood.
