The prevalence of obesity among children is high and is increasing. We know that obesity runs in families, with children of obese parents at greater risk of developing obesity than children of thin parents. Research on genetic factors in obesity has provided us with estimates of the proportion of the variance in a population accounted for by genetic factors. However, this research does not provide information regarding individual development. To design effective preventive interventions… 
Obesity Prevention in Young Children
TLDR
The theoretical models of nutritional gatekeeper and social ecological model are presented as frameworks for addressing the obesity epidemic among young children and the use of effective family, community, and school-based interventions for preventing overweight and obesity and promoting healthy behaviors in children will be examined.
Like mother, like daughter: familial patterns of overweight are mediated by mothers' dietary disinhibition.
TLDR
The findings suggest that familial influences on child overweight differ according to parent and child sex and suggest that mothers' dietary disinhibition mediates familial similarities in degree of overweight for mothers and daughters.
Early Feeding Practices and Development of Childhood Obesity
Early child feeding practices, defined as the ways in which caregivers interact with their children around food and eating, have been implicated in children’s risk of obesity. Early child feeding

The effect of childrens' eating behaviors and parental feeding style on childhood obesity.
Family food environments as determinants of preschool-aged children`s eating behaviours: implications for obesity prevention policy. A review.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that eating behaviours are likely to be established early in life and may be maintained into adulthood and the findings suggest that the family environment should be considered in developing obesity prevention strategy for children, yet the current strategy focuses primarily on the school environment.

TLDR
To meet the challenge of promoting healthy weight in children in the current eating environment, parents need guidance regarding alternatives to traditional feeding practices.
The Role of Parents in Preventing Childhood Obesity
TLDR
It is argued that interventions aimed at preventing childhood overweight and obesity should involve parents as important forces for change in their children's behaviors, and that preventing and controlling childhood obesity will require multifaceted and community-wide programs and policies.

The physiology of body weight regulation: relevance to the etiology of obesity in children.
TLDR
The rapid increases in the prevalence of obesity and the seeming voluntary immutability of adult body fatness can be taken as tacit evidence that the pediatric environment can be altered in a way that affects adult body weight.
Health consequences of obesity in youth: childhood predictors of adult disease.
TLDR
The adverse effects of obesity in children and adolescents are considered and areas for future research are outlined.
Do obese children become obese adults? A review of the literature.
TLDR
Although the correlations between anthropometric measures of obesity in childhood and those in adulthood varied considerably among studies, the associations were consistently positive and the risk of adult obesity was at least twice as high for obese children as for nonobese children.
Parent-child relationships in nutrient intake: the Framingham Children's Study.
TLDR
The results of this study confirm that parents' eating habits have an impact on the nutrient intake of their preschool children; the study furnishes indirect support for dietary-intervention programs targeting families for the primary prevention of CHD.
Parents' and children's adiposity and eating style.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the optimal environment for children's development of self-control of energy intake is that in which parents provide healthy food choices but allow children to assume control of how much they consume.
Sensory Preferences for Fat and Sugar in Adolescence and Adult Life

TLDR
The consumption of sugars is higher in childhood and adolescence than in adult life, and sugars contribute over one-quarter of all calories to the preadolescent diet.
Eating in the adult world: the rise of dieting in childhood and adolescence.
TLDR
The highly restrained girls expressed low body esteem and discontent with their body build, weight and certain regions of their bodies, and their 'ideal' body shape was significantly slimmer than their perceived current body shape, and slimmer even than that of the non-dieters.
Parental influences on children's eating behavior and relative weight.
TLDR
The present study suggests a relationship between certain parental variables and the relative weight of their children.
A longitudinal analysis of accelerated weight gain in preschool children.
TLDR
Results strongly suggest that encouragement of heart healthy dietary intake patterns and participation in physical activity can decrease accelerated weight gain and obesity, even in preschool children.
