    Abstract

    Poor exposure and consumption of fruits and vegetables (FV) in early
    childhood influence lifelong eating habits that may influence weight
    and health outcomes. This study explored the multi-directional
    relationships between maternal socio-demographic and psychobehavioural
    factors in predicting of FV intake in a cohort of 218
    14-month old children from the South Australian Infants Dietary
    Intake study. Mothers with healthy infants weighing ≥2500 g
    and ≥37 weeks’ gestation were recruited post-natally from 11
    South Australian hospitals. Socio-demographic data were collected at
    recruitment. At 14 months postnatal, mothers completed a questionnaire
    exploring their perceptions of child feeding behaviour, exposure
    to novel foods, reactivity, maternal psychological distress and feeding
    self-efficacy.
