Feeding Problems in Children Aged Two to Six Years and Related Factors

Inappropriate feeding behaviours are frequent in early childhood, parents often do not consider their children’s "overweight" status as a problem, and this children can be underweight, normal or overweight. So whatever the child's anthropometric measurements are, problematic feeding behaviors should be assessed.


Objective: The aim of our study is to assess the nutritional patterns of the study and the control group while addressing the affecting factors to find out the correlations with anthropometric measurements. The study group consists of 2-6-years-old children who were brought to the hospital for refusing to eat and the control group is composed of children without feeding problems.
