A conceptual mediation model for the influence of parenting and feeding practices and styles on children's eating behavior, dietary preferences, intake and subsequent weight status. Note: A total of 67 studies were reviewed, the numbers under the pathway labels indicate the proportion of studies that addressed that given pathway. Fourty-nine studies addressed one pathway, 14 studies addressed two pathways and only 4 studies addressed all three pathways. Note that because some studies addressed more than one pathway, the n's presented in the figure add up to more than 67. The majority of studies (34) utilized cross-sectional designs; 11 of studies were longitudinal and 21 used experimental designs to manipulate (or simulate manipulation of) parenting.
