|Abstract:||Among early adolescents (10–14 years), poor diet quality along with physical inactivity
can contribute to an increased risk of obesity and associated biomarkers for chronic disease.
Approximately one-third of United States (USA) children in this age group are overweight or
obese. Therefore, attention to factors affecting dietary intake as one of the primary contributors
to obesity is important. Early adolescents consume foods and beverages during eating occasions
that occur with and without parental supervision. Parents may influence eating behaviors of
early adolescents during eating occasions when they are present or during independent eating
occasions by engaging in practices that affect availability of foods and beverages, and through
perceived normative beliefs and expectations for intake. Therefore, the purpose of this article was
to describe the influence of parenting practices on eating behaviors in general and when specifically
applied to independent eating occasions of early adolescents. This information may be helpful to
inform parenting interventions targeting obesity prevention among early adolescents focusing on
independent eating occasions.
