ABSTRACT

In this study, we examined the validity and reliability of parents’ attitudes and behaviors toward feeding as one of the environmental variables explaining obesity and eating problems in children. We translated the Comprehensive Feeding Practices Questionnaire (CFPQ) developed by Musher-Eizenman and Holub (2007) into a Korean version. To this end, the developer of the CFPQ approved the validation of the Korean scale, and the Korean Comprehensive Feeding Practices Questionnaire (K-CFPQ) was created through translation-retranslation of the original scale’s questions. A total of 434 questionnaire responses were used for analysis in this study and 31 questions comprising eight sub-factors were developed for the K-CFPQ. The reliability of the items (Cronbach’s α) showed an appropriate level of confidence, and the test-retest correlation results demonstrated high reliability. By confirming convergent validity (Child Feeding Questionnaire: K-CFQ, Children's Eating Behavior Questionnaire: K-CEBQ) and group comparison validity, the K-CFPQ was determined to be a reliable and valid tool for assessing parents’ attitudes and behaviors toward feeding. The findings from this study are meaningful in that they verify whether an evaluation tool that can comprehensively measure parents’ behaviors and attitudes related to children’s meals can be used in Korea. Futhermore, the developed K-CFPQ scale is expected to impart an understanding of the relationship between obesity, eating disorders, and parents' attitudes.
