dc.description.abstractBidirectional studies between maternal feeding practices with subsequent child weight are limited
dc.description.abstractwith no studies in Asian populations. In longitudinal analyses
dc.description.abstractwe assessed the directionality of the associations between maternal feeding practices and body mass index (BMI) in preschoolers. Participants were 428 mother child dyads from the GUSTO (Growing Up in Singapore Toward healthy Outcomes) cohort. Feeding practices were assessed using the Comprehensive Feeding Practices Questionnaire (CFPQ) at age 5 y. Child BMI was measured at ages 4 and 6 y. BMI and maternal feeding practices subscales were transformed to SD scores and both directions of their associations examined with multivariable linear regression and pathway modeling. Higher BMI at age 4 was associated with lower encouragement of balance and variety (beta = -0.33; 95% CI: -0.53
dc.description.abstractlower pressure to eat (beta = -0.49; -0.68
dc.description.abstract-0.29) and higher restriction (beta = 1.10; 0.67
dc.description.abstract1.52) at age 5
dc.description.abstractadjusting for confounders and baseline feeding practices at 3 years. In the reverse direction
dc.description.abstractonly pressure and restriction at age 5 were associated with lower and higher child BMI at age 6 years
dc.description.abstractrespectively. After the adjustment for baseline BMI at age 5
dc.description.abstractthe association with pressure was attenuated to non-significance (beta = 0.01 (-0.01
dc.description.abstractwhile the association with restriction remained significant (beta = 0.02; 0.002
dc.description.abstract0.03). Overall
dc.description.abstractassociations from child BMI to maternal restriction for weight control and pressure feeding practices was stronger than the association from these maternal feeding practices to child BMI (Wald's statistics = 24.3 and 19.5
dc.description.abstractrespectively; p < 0.001). The strength and directionality suggests that the mothers in the Asian population were likely to adopt these feeding practices in response to their child's BMI
dc.description.abstractrather than the converse.
