No Intervention: Control
This group of children, will have to perform a sensory imagination task about neutral facts before choosing the portion size of a food.
Experimental: Food sensory imagination
This group, the "food sensory imagination" group, will have to perform a sensory imagination task foods (being the intervention) before choosing the portion size of a food.
Behavioral: Sensory imagination about foods
In both groups, children will be presented with pictures of items. In the control group, the pictures will represent landscapes at different seasons. In the experimental group, the pictures will represent a variety of foods. In the experimental group, based on the pictures representing a variety of foods, children will have to perform a food sensory imagination task before choosing the portion size of a food.
- portion size [ Time Frame: The measure for the two foods will be conducted one week apart ]choice of a portion size among three sizes (small, medium, large), for two different foods
