About the Mom & Child Plate Project

The Research Group on Disparities in Health within the Department of Health and Behavior Studies at Teachers College, Columbia University, in New York, New York is studying the impact of The MyPlate Project for Moms and Children, a new website with cartoon-like videos and online activities that will allow you to learn about First Lady Michelle Obama’s work introducing MY PLATE (replacing the old Food Pyramid) to promote healthy eating and increase physical activity to combat the nation’s obesity epidemic.
You are being asked to participate in this project to help us learn “what works” to inspire healthy eating and physical activity behaviors in moms and children.
  •   Participation is limited to the first 200 women.
  •  It takes about 20 -25 minutes to complete.
  • After 200 people complete the survey, the computer program will automatically close and send  Amazon gift certificates to three randomly chosen e-mail accounts ($300, $200 or $100) without in any way linking your identity to the survey results.
