MY ACTIVITIES
Main objective: taking advantage of the link between higher proficiency in categorization tasks and lower food rejection rates to develop solutions to food rejection in three- to six-years-old children.

Specific objectives of the project:
  • To provide a model for children’s naive food ontology.
  • To clarify the nature of children’s food rejection.
  • To bridge the both the theoretical gaps between psychological and philosophical literature, as well as the gaps between scholars’ and children’s food categories.
