Research Study: The types of foods that parents give to their children
My name is Amy Storfer-Isser and I am a Doctoral student in the Psychology Department at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Ohio. I am conducting a research study about the factors that influence the types of foods that parents give to their children. If you are a parent aged 21 - 50, have a child between the ages of 2 and 6, and have the primary responsibility for feeding this child, I am interested in your opinions on this important topic.
Participation in this study involves completing a 20 minute on-line survey. Participation is totally voluntary and will not affect your relationship to BGSU in any way. You are free to stop participation at any time without penalty. I anticipate no risks to you for participating in this study (no greater than those normally encountered in daily life). I greatly value your participation and hope you will agree to do so!

If you agree to participate, you can choose to enter into a raffle for a chance to win a gift card to amazon.com. Five prizes will be awarded - four $25 and one $100 amazon.com gift card. If you are among the first 100 participants to respond to the survey, you will triple your chances to win. If you would like to enter into the raffle, you will be asked to provide your name, email address and phone number at the end of the survey so that I can contact you if you win a gift card. To protect your confidentiality, your name, e-mail address and phone number will be maintained in a separate database that is password protected. Once the raffle prizes have been awarded, all names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers will be deleted from the records. I will be the only person with access to the data, and the results will be reported in aggregate form. In addition to the chance to win a gift card, your participation in this research study may benefit society by increasing our understanding of the types of foods that parents give to their children, although there may not be a direct benefit to you.
