The . All - text and , letting . a b s t r a c t The current study examined the associations between children ' s and mother ' s food neophobia and paren - tal feeding practices . Eighty - five mothers of 3 - to 12 - year old children (M = 5 . 7 years ; 52% girls) com - pleted a questionnaire online about food neophobia and feeding practices . Mothers with children high in food neophobia used more restriction for health and less monitoring . Mothers with food neophobic children and mothers who were themselves food neophobic also reported that they do not make healthy foods readily available for their children . Mothers high in food neophobia also used more restriction for weight . This study is a starting point for understanding the link between neophobia and feeding practices , but future longitudinal work is needed in order to determine direction of effects . However , interventions could be created to help parents understand the importance of feeding practices for promoting children ' s food acceptance .
