This study was concerned with parents' perceptions of their children as being overweight or obese. Parental perceptions and BMI z scores were examined and the authors found that "higher child BMI z scores strikingly predicted a subsequent parental perception of child overweight. Parent-perceived overweight preceded rising (not falling) BMI, but these effects were small."
