465. Responsive Feeding and Division of Responsibility: A Comparative Analysis of Childhood Feeding Approaches

Sunday, October 21
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
CE: 1.5

Session Level 2 - Intermediate

Parent/caregiver feeding behaviors are known to be important for optimal child health, growth and development. A familiar and accepted parent/caregiver feeding framework is the Satter Division of Responsibility (sDOR), which addresses leadership in meal and snack environment, composition, and delivery and child autonomy in deciding whether and how much to eat from foods offered. Responsive feeding is a relatively recent arrival, originating from parenting terminology. sDOR and responsive feeding frameworks promote feeding relationships congruent with healthy child growth and development. However, the extent of overlap between their theoretical and practical application and unique characteristics are not clearly articulated in the professional literature. This session will provide direction to compare the two; show their relationship to authoritative parenting, health and child obesity prevention; and reveal tools to assess sDOR and responsive feeding practices.
