Promoting healthy dietary intake among families with obesity via an optimal defaults grocery shopping intervention
The University at Buffalo (UB) Child Health and Behavioral Lab is looking for families who online grocery shop to join a remote study. The goal of this study is to develop new strategies to help families make healthier choices while using Instacart.
