Mealtime Behaviours in Children with and without Disabilities:
Family Interactions and Stress

Researchers at Deakin University are conducting a study looking at Mealtime Behaviour in children with and without disabilities and developmental delays. The purpose of this project is to investigate how parent and child factors influence the interactions that take place during family mealtimes.

If you are the primary caregiver of a child aged between 1 and 6 years you are invited to participate in this research.

We will ask you to complete a short, anonymous questionnaire with questions about your attitudes and feelings towards mealtimes, feeding practices, parental stress and your child’s mealtime behaviour.

We believe this will require about 30 minutes of your time.

In order for this questionnaire to be truly anonymous, it is not possible for you to save it and return to it on a different occasion. Please allow yourself sufficient time to complete it in one sitting.
