Article

posted by Research Admin 1 on 12 February 2019

This research examines the association between children's (9-11 year olds') emotional eating  (EE) behaviour and body mass index (BMI) and health behaviours (i.e., diet, physical activity, sleep and TV-viewing). They found that, "EE was unrelated to BMI in this sample, but prospective studies are needed to determine whether higher EE in children predicts the development of undesirable dietary patterns and obesity over time."
