dc.description.abstractObjectives: Despite widespread use of behavioural observations to evaluate child feeding behaviours in research and clinical practice, few studies have comprehensively characterised mealtimes or identified features that differentiate children with and without disordered feeding; these were the aims of the current study. Methods: Mealtime observations were conducted for 18 children with Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and 21 typically developing children. Observations were coded inductively, and associations between disorder and observed mealtime actions were examined. Results: Most behaviours were observed across both clinical and non-clinical mealtimes, and many did not differ in frequency between children with and without ARFID. However, significant group differences were observed in the frequencies of behaviours relating to food intake, visual and physical engagement with feeding, and movement during mealtimes. Conclusions: The comparability of behaviours across clinical and non-clinical groups suggests that eating behaviours exist on a continuum from ‘normal’ to ‘abnormal’, with group differences relating to frequency rather than type of behaviour. The behavioural differences observed in this study suggest that identification of children with ARFID should focus on child engagement with food and restlessness during mealtimes. Reliance on emotional and escape-maintained behaviours will lead to under-recognition of families in need of clinical support.en

dc.exception.reasonThe journal allows only pre-review versions of accepted articles to be submitted to insititutional repositories and requests that a link to the final published location is added to the open access submission. However, following acceptance of the article on 29.01.18 there was no further contact from the journal or publishers and no DOI or any other identifiable details demonstrating publication were provided by the journal/publishers to the authors until 22.05.18. Given that there were notable amendments carried out between pre-review and acceptance, the ability to forward readers to the final accepted version was considered essential. The final version is still unpublished as of 24.05.18 so it is also not possible to upload an embargoed version of the post-reviewed manuscript.en
