Summary of "Adaptation and Assessment of the Child Feeding Questionnaire for Chinese Immigrant Families of Young Children in the U.S."

Chinese immigrant mothers have been found to hold cultural-specific beliefs about children's weight and use cultural-specific feeding practices when feeding their children. However, current measurements of child feeding, including the widely-used Child Feeding Questionnaire (CFQ), do not capture these cultural-specific beliefs and practices. Thus, the present study examined the underlying factor structure of the original CFQ (7-factor model) and the modified CFQ with additional Asian cultural-specific feeding items (8- and 9-factor model), and assessed the validity of the CFQ among U.S. Chinese immigrant mothers.
