Parent Feeding Practices and Child Eating Behaviour

Feeding Practices and Structure Questionnaire

Dr Elena Jansen developed the ‘Feeding Practices and Structure Questionnaire’ (FPSQ-28) to measure practices used by parents of children aged 2-5 years. The FPSQ-28 has been used in five countries to date and is validated for use in mothers and fathers.

A template for the questionnaire and details of scoring are available here.

NOURISH Randomised Controlled Trial

Our staff have led the way for research into parent feeding practices and child eating behaviour. QUT was the site of NOURISH, led by Emeritus Professor Lynne Daniels, a world first trial supporting mothers to use responsive feeding practices with their infants.  Information about data collected in NOURISH can be found here https://researchdatafinder.qut.edu.au/display/n34249
