Special Issue "Eating-Behavior in Children and Adolescents"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on eating behaviors in infants, children, and adolescents. The recent American Heart Association Statement highlighted the importance of targeting not just what a child eats but how they eat it. While there is a large body of literature documenting the eating behaviors of children and adolescents, significant gaps remain. There is a need to integrate how children’s individual differences in temperament, appetite, and adiposity shape parent feeding behaviours. There is also a need for empirical evidence demonstrating benefits of responsive approaches. Studies are also needed to help us understand eating behaviors within the wider environmental context, including poverty, food insecurity, stress, other caregivers, and culture. This Special Issue aims to bring together the latest research on eating behaviors of infants, children and adolescents.
