Abstract

This study examined psychometric properties and baseline/post-treatment racial differences in the Child Feeding Questionnaire (CFQ) in parents of overweight/obese children in a randomized controlled obesity trial. Participants were 302 (n = 285 mothers, n = 17 fathers) diverse (n = 207 Black, n = 80 White), treatment-seeking parents of children (5–11 years) with overweight/obesity. CFQ data fit the established Anderson factor structure in the full sample and subsample of Black parents. Black parents had higher scores than White parents on only Pressure to Eat. The CFQ yields reliable and valid scores in a racially diverse treatment-seeking sample, suggesting its utility in culturally-sensitive pediatric obesity treatment.
