GENERAL PEDIATRICS: ISSUES IN PRIMARY CARE

Dynamic Nature of Maternal Feeding Practices: Differences Between Genders

ABSTRACT: Controlling maternal feeding practices (CMFP) are associated with increased BMI in children. However, it is unclear whether changes in CMFPs result in later changes in BMI z-score or are a response to increases in child BMI.

The objective of this study was to determine over a 4.5-year period whether: 1) Early change in CMFP predicts later change in child zBMI or 2) Early change in child zBMI predicts later change in CMFPs. Findings showed that changes in CMFPs did not result in increased overweight risk among children. Boys may benefit from increasing CMFPs while girls zBMI did not change. However, mothers appear to be more concerned about their female child s increasing zBMI and subsequently became more controlling. Understanding the impact of maternal feeding practices on children will help guide future recommendations to parents.
