A Study for Standardization of Korean Version Children’s Eating Behavior Inventory


The present study was designed to develop and standardize the Korean version of Children’s Eating Behavior Inventory (CEBI). The parents of preschool and elementary school children ranging in age from 3 to 10(N=713) and those of children showing significant growth failure as well as eating problem(N=96) administered CEBI, and some of them also completed K-CBCL(N=300) for validationg CEBI. After correlation analysis, 27 items out of 40 were selected. Based on the exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis along with theoretical assumption, 5-factor structure was selected: prevasive problematic eating attitude, parent stress, problem behavior during mealtime, eating prohibited food, and helping prepare mealtime. internal consistency and test-retest reliability demonstrated that CEBI was a reliable instrument. The significant correlation between K-CBCL and CEBI and differences between clinic and normal group showed that CEBI was also a valid instrument to examine children’s problematic eating behavior. The result of two-way ANOVA showed that there were significant differences between preschooler and school-aged children in problematic eating behavior. Clinical and research implications and limitaions are discussed.
