Abstract

There were three Parental Feeing Styles (PFS) identified. This study was aimed to find differences between these three styles. One hundred and seventy seven Saudi children from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and 30 British children from Edinburgh, UK, aged 6 to 36 months were selected randomly from baby clinic files of primary care centres. Anthropometric measurements, blood samples, food frequency questionnaire and four food weighed intake were used to collect data. This study presents, for the first time, measurements of PFS in contemporary children from the two countries, but there was no evidence found for any impact of PFS on nutrient intake, nutritional status, or growth of children.
