Brief Summary

The purpose of this experiment is to investigate the effect of video game playing for 30 minutes on food intake and subjective appetite. The investigators hypothesize that video game playing will affect food intake in children. Food intake will be measured at 30 minutes following a glucose (50g glucose in 250ml of water) or sweetened non-caloric (150mg Sucralose® in 250ml of water) beverage with or without video game playing. Subjective appetite will be measured at 0, 20, 35 and 65 minutes.
