A psychometric evaluation of the Korean Version Children’s Eating Behaviour Quesionnaire


The purpose of the present study was to develop and standardize the Korean version of the Children’s Eating Behavior Questionnarie (K-CEBQ). The parents of preschool and elemenatry school children (N=687) ranging in age from 2 to 9 years and parents of children with developmental disorders (N=71) completed the CEBQ. A subset of these participants were retested for reliability and also completed the Children’s Eating Behavior Inventory-Korean version (K-CEBI) and Child Behavior Checklist-Korean Version (K-CBCL) to examine the validity of the scores. Based on exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, a theoretically-supported 8-factor structure fit the data bes, comprising the following factors; Enjoyment of Food, Satiety Responsiveness, Food Fussiness, Food Responsiveness, Emotional Overeating, Emotional Undereating, Slowness in Eating, and Desire to drink. Reliability was supproted by high interenal consistency and test-retest reliability estimates. Validity was aslo supported as evidenced by positive andsignificant correlations between the K-CEBI and K-CBCL and differences in K-CEBQ score between the developmental disordered and normal(school-based) samples of youth. T-test results showed no significant differences in K-CEBQ scores between gender, and a one-way ANOVA revealed significant differences across ages. Clinical and research implications and limitaions are discussed.
