In this systematic review, the authors examined research focusing on food-related parenting practices used by parents with overweight/obesity. Web of Science, PubMed and PsycINFO were searched.  The authors note that the findings suggest "some differences between parents with overweight/obesity and healthy-weight and the use of some food-related parenting practices, however, they should be interpreted with caution since research remains limited and is generally methodologically weak." The differences between parents with overweight and obesity versus parents with healthy-weight were with respect to food accessibility, food availability, and modelling.
