Moderating effects of family environment on overweight/obese adolescents’ dietary behaviours Carbert, Nicole S.; Brussoni, Mariana; Geller, Josie; Mâsse, Louise


Background: The familial environment can influence adolescents' risk for obesity. However, we do not fully understand the mechanisms through which parents can influence overweight/obese adolescents' dietary behaviours, specifically whether parenting practices (e.g., rules or routines) and/or their own dietary behaviours are associated with their overweight/obese adolescent's dietary quality. Objectives This study examined whether parenting practices and/or parental modeling of dietary quality are associated with overweight/obese adolescents’ dietary quality while considering the moderating effects of parenting styles and family functioning.
