Research Question: Does the timing of introduction to complementary foods, or types of foods introduced, predict child food responsiveness and emotional overeating (i.e., tendency to overeat in response to external food cues and emotions, respectively) at 12- and 24-months of age among Hispanic mother-child dyads?
Key Findings: In this observational cohort study, a 1-month delay in the introduction to complementary foods was associated with a 6% reduction in food responsiveness and a 5% reduction in emotional overeating scores among Hispanic toddlers. The observed variability in the types of foods introduced precluded analyses to assess whether certain complementary food types were more predictive of self-regulatory appetitive traits.
