Mindful feeding leads to better eating behavior

Parent Interventions

Mindful feeding may help reduce negative eating behaviours such as pickiness, emotional over-eating or behavioural problems during meal times, according to new research done by Bowling Green State University, USA. It was found as hypothesised that authoritative parenting was related to higher rates of mindful feeding while authoritarian and permissive parenting were related to lower rates of mindful feeding. Mindful feeding mediated the relation between each parenting style and each child's eating behavior (i.e., food fussiness, problematic mealtime behaviors, and emotional overeating). These findings suggest that that mindful feeding may be a promising new construct, and its relation to feeding interventions aimed at improving problematic child eating behaviors should be further evaluated. Mindful parenting improves the quality of time with the child and interaction is 100 percent focussed than distracted.
