BACKGROUND Parents' use of food as reward has been linked to children's dietary intake, but the association with children's eating behaviour and overweight risk is less clear. OBJECTIVES To examine the temporal association of using food as reward with eating behaviour, body mass index (BMI) and weight status of children. METHODS Participants were 3642 children of the population-based Generation R Study in the Netherlands (8.3% overweight/obese). Repeated assessments were collected at child ages ...

OBJECTIVES To assess if eating in the absence of hunger (EAH) extends to healthier snacks and examine the relationship between the home food environment and EAH in children with normal weight (NW) or overweight/obesity (OB) who are at low risk (LR) or high risk (HR) for obesity based on maternal obesity. METHODS EAH was assessed after lunch and dinner when children received either low energy dense fruit snacks or high energy dense sweet/savoury snacks. The availability of obesogenic foods in the...

BACKGROUND Children's vegetable acceptance increases following repeated exposure and associative conditioning pairing a target vegetable with a well-liked food. Yet traditional pairings may increase energy intake when well-liked foods are calorie-rich. OBJECTIVES To examine whether pairing a non-food stimulus with target vegetables increases children's vegetable acceptance and whether effects exceed those of repeated exposure. METHODS Twenty-three 6-to-8-year-old children participated in twice-w...

BACKGROUND Maternal parenting styles are salient trait-based factors associated with pediatric obesity risk. The purpose of this study was to examine the longitudinal associations of maternal parenting styles and ecological momentary assessment (EMA) measures of maternal feeding practices and child food intake across middle childhood to early adolescence. METHODS Mother-child dyads (n = 186; M baseline child age = 10.03 ± 0.89) enrolled in a six-wave bi-annual longitudinal study. At baseline, mo...

BACKGROUND Evidence on associations of maternal overweight and obesity with risks of offspring mortality and obesity is limited in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). OBJECTIVE We aimed to assess the associations of maternal overweight and obesity with neonatal mortality, and offspring overweight and obesity in LMICs. METHODS Data were from the Demographic and Health Surveys in 61 LMICs. A total of 507 203 pairs of mother and offspring were included in the analysis for neonatal mortality, ...

BACKGROUND Economic development has brought rapid shifts in the food environment of Chinese children and adolescents. OBJECTIVES To assess the changes in childhood nutritional status across ethnic groups and economic status from 2005 to 2014. METHODS 664 094 Chinese Han and 224 151 ethnic minority children and adolescents aged 7 to 18 years were assessed in three national cross-sectional surveys (2005, 2010 and 2014). Gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of each ethnic group was categorized i...

BACKGROUND Childhood obesity is a global problem. Early obesity prevention interventions are complex and differ in effectiveness. Novel frameworks, taxonomies and experience from the Early Prevention of Obesity in CHildren (EPOCH) trials were applied to unpack interventions. OBJECTIVES Deconstruct interventions into their components (target behaviours, delivery features and behaviour change techniques [BCTs]). Identify lessons learned and future recommendations for intervention planning, deliver...

OBJECTIVES To describe verbal and non-verbal restrictive feeding practices used by low-income mothers with their pre-adolescent children during a laboratory-based protocol, and examine associations between mother/child anthropometrics, child appetitive traits and mothers' restrictive practices. METHODS Mothers and children (dyad n = 108, mean child age = 11.0 years [SD = 1.2]) were provided a standardized meal and then buffet of desserts. Sessions were video-recorded, and trained coders reliably...

OBJECTIVE To comprehensively examine the behavioral phenotypes of children with and without executive function (EF) impairments in a clinical sample of youth with obesity. METHODS Youth aged 8 to 17 years (Mean age = 12.97) attending a medical clinic for obesity and their caregivers (N = 195 dyads) completed a battery of behavioral questionnaires. Caregiver-proxy report of EF was assessed using the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function. Latent Class Analysis was conducted to identify E...

While most of the time unconsidered, child and adolescent obesity has been also associated with impaired brain health and function that can definitely affect their social interaction and integration, and then well-being and mental health. The European Childhood Obesity Group recently gathered experts in the field who discussed the main available and reliable evidence regarding the role of physical activity on brain health and cognitive functioning in children and adolescents with obesity and who...
