Four female children (4 to 6 years of age) were tested on fixed interval (FI) 30-sec and 60-sec food schedule with M & M candy reinforcers. All four subjects displayed increased movement on the FI schedules as compared to appropriate FR 1 baseline conditions. Increased drinking was shown by three subjects, and increased vocalization by two subjects. These results clearly demonstrated schedule-induced behaviors in children with food reinforcement schedules which are typically used in animal experiments.U
