An Investigation into Eating Behaviour and Personality
About this study
Which facets of impulsivity differentiate primary school children at high-risk of developing problematic eating from low-risk peers? This project will examine the relationship between reward sensitivity, impulsivity and food addiction in children. This study will involve parents of primary school-aged children (ages 4-12) completing various measures on personality, eating behaviour, food preferences, parenting style, degree of conflict and cohesion and demographic information. The relationship between these factors and food addiction will be analysed via Multiple Regression Analyses, specifically moderation and mediation via PROCESS.
The survey is split into two parts:
1) Prevalence rates for food addiction and facets of personality, mainly reward sensitivity and impulsivity.
2) Those who have children aged 4-12 years will be invited to continue a longer survey, in which each parent will complete measures of family functioning, parenting styles, and measures of food addiction, reward sensitivity and impulsivity for each of their children within the appropriate age range (4-12, primary school-aged children in Australia).
