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.
