About

This study aims at comparing learning mechanisms to increase vegetable acceptance in infants at complementary feeding, namely repeated exposure (RE), flavor-flavor learning (FFL) and flavor-nutrient learning (FNL); measuring the stability of the learning effect; and examining the impact of infants' feeding history on vegetable acceptance.

100 participants in 3 patient groups

RE group
Experimental group
Description:
Repeated consumption of artichoke purée. This group was exposed to basic artichoke puree from Exposure 1 to 10 (E1 to E10)
Treatment:
Behavioral: Repeated consumption of basic artichoke purée.
FFL group
Active Comparator group
Description:
Repeated consumption of artichoke purée. This group (Flavor-flavor learning group) was exposed to sweet artichoke puree from Exposure 1 to 10 (E1 to E10).
Treatment:
Behavioral: Repeated consumption of sweet artichoke purée.
FNL group
Active Comparator group
Description:
Repeated consumption of artichoke purée. This group (Flavor-nutrient learning group) was exposed to fat, energy-dense artichoke puree from Exposure 1 to 10 (E1 to E10).
Treatment:
