Parenting for Eating and Activity Scale (PEAS):

The Parenting for Eating and Activity Scale (PEAS) was developed as part of a childhood obesity prevention and control study funded by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute to Dr. John Elder. Development of the scale is described in the Larios paper and assessment of sensitivity to intervention effects is described in the Ayala and Crespo papers. We welcome its use in your research. Please let us know if you decide to use it, if you need it available in other languages (we are aware of at least 3 other translations) and if you need any assistance when analyzing your data.

Children’s Eating Behavior Questionnaire (CEBQ)

The Children’s Eating Behavior Questionnaire (CEBQ) was adapted as part of a clinic-based obesity prevention and control randomized controlled trial funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH/NIDDK). A shortened 14-item version of the original CEBQ by Wardle and colleagues (2001) was adapted to assess obesogenic eating behaviors of English- and Spanish-speaking Latino children. Click to Download (PDF Version)
