Trial Information

The Effect of a Coloring Prompt on Health Engagement


The investigators will randomly assign some individuals with 4-9 year old children to
receive colorful reminders to engage in a given health behavior. Others will receive
identical reminders along with a prompt to share the reminder sheet with their child so it
can be turned into a piece of art. The investigators are interested in whether the coloring
prompt will lead the reminder to stay in the home for longer, be placed on the refrigerator,
etc. and thus result in an increase in compliance with the recommended health behavior.
