The CNP Diet and Perception Research Category consolidates research exploring the interdependent relationship between dietary intake and child and adolescent perception. Within Nutritional Psychology, perception is referred to as the organizing, interpreting, conceptualizing, and conscious experiencing of information coming in from our dietary-intake-related senses, which include sight, taste (texture and flavor), and sound.
