- Influencing Up: Children's Sway on Parents’ Food ChoicesJournal of Nutrition Education and BehaviorVol. 52Issue 8
- PreviewAlthough the feeding relationship is acknowledged to be bidirectional between caregivers and children, most often parenting influences on young children's eating behaviors are investigated through the lens of how parents influence children's eating—either for the good or the not so good. While individual differences, such as children's temperaments or sibling differences, are often referred to as having an impact on food parenting, very seldom is the child's influence on the parent behavior the intentional focus of studies seeking to explain why children eat the way they do.
