Skeletal and Cognitive Effects of Nutrition from Eggs

We are currently enrolling participants for a nine-month randomized controlled trial examining the effects of protein foods on bone strength and cognition. Participants must be between the ages of 9-13 years. Exclusion criteria include having reached menarche (for females), or having diseases or taking medications known to affect bone health. Participants must not have a known allergy to eggs/egg products, milk/milk products, or gelatin.

Participants will to come to our laboratory on three separate occasions: baseline, 4.5 months, and 9 months. Each testing session will take approximately 2 hours each.

Participants will receive $200 for completing all aspects of the testing sessions [that is, $50 for completion of session 1; $65 for completion of session 2; and $85 for completion of session 3]. Additionally, participants will receive food products that will be consumed at least 10 times per week for the duration of the study.

If you or your child may be interested in participating in this study, please contact our laboratory at 706-542-4918 or by email at bone@uga.edu to learn more.
