Help Me Feed Me: A Mixed Methods Study of Factors Associated with Infant and Toddler Teachers’ Feeding Styles

Share
Description:

This study’s research questions will address significant research gaps in the literature: (1) Is the Infant Feeding Styles Questionnaire (IFSQ) valid for use with infant and toddler childcare providers? (2) What are the factors associated with infant and toddler childcare providers’ feeding styles? (3) What are the attitudes and beliefs among infant and toddler child care center providers surrounding provider feeding styles? This study proposes to use a sequential mixed methods design of a quantitative (secondary analysis of the Baby Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care, a.k.a Baby NAP SACC, intervention study data) followed by a qualitative (semi-structured interviews with providers) method as the analytical approach to answer the research questions. Study results can help inform the development or refinement of culturally-sensitive responsive feeding intervention research trials, programs, trainings, and policies for the ECE setting.
