A recent study conducted by Tanja Kral of Penn nursing suggests that some children are less responsive to their internal cues of hunger and fullness, leading to obesity. Tanja suggests “future studies should test whether teaching children to focus on internal satiety cues and structuring the home food environment in a healthy way may prevent at-risk children from overeating.”
