Sandrine Monnery-Patris

Sandrine Monnery-Patris is a Research Associate at INRA, within the Centre for Taste and Feeding Behaviour (UMR 1324) in Dijon.

 To tackle the new challenges with which feeding behaviour is confronted (sustainability, health impacts, excess weight, obesity and related pathologies), her research aims to gain an understanding of the sensory, cognitive and psychosocial triggers which impact feeding behaviour in humans. Her research also focuses on childhood and the parent/child dyad. It strives to understand and act upon the factors which drive consumption and feeding behaviour, the mechanisms involved in the acquisition, resilience and modification of feeding behaviour.

Her scientific strategy notably includes the study of ‘new’ feeding behaviour in relation to social change (e.g. rebalancing vegetable/animal proteins, eating on the run…), with the aim of improving in fine the health and well-being of individuals. She also devotes a considerable amount of her work to teaching her knowledge to the general public, both students and those working with children of all ages, notably via her involvement with the Institut Petite Enfance Boris Cyrulnik.

The results have highlighted the importance of early interaction between parent/child, and sensory development as a driving force in ensuring children have a balanced diet and that their social skills are nurtured.
