Statistically significant pathways in bidirectional models for relations among maternal-reported non-responsive feeding practices: overt restriction (a), persuasive feeding (b), reward for eating (c), and reward for behaviour (d) and child satiety responsiveness and food responsiveness between child ages 2, 3.7 and 5 years (N = 207). Models were adjusted for child BMI z-score at 14 months (not shown to enhance readability). All potential cross-lagged paths from child eating behaviours to maternal feeding practices and vice versa were estimated but only statistically significant path estimates (p < .05) are shown here. Coefficients are standardised. Model fit across the four models was good and ranged from: x2= 20.86 to 44.98, df = 17 to 20, RMSEA = 0.03 to 0.08, CFI = 0.96 to 0.99
