Abstract

Young children with T1D frequently display challenging eating behaviors interfering with diabetes management. The current study explored the feasibility and acceptability of a behavioral parent feeding training session with young children with type 1 diabetes. As part of a larger intervention pilot focused on healthy eating and physical activity, 9 young children (Mage = 4.22) with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and their mothers participated in a novel/non-preferred food training session. Parents were taught strategies and then were given an opportunity to use the strategies with their child. The paradigm was video recorded and content was coded for parent and child behavior. Feasibility was high, and all parents rated the feeding session as acceptable. All parents demonstrated using at least one behavioral feeding skill (M = 3.38, SD = 1.60). All 9 (100%) children touched at least one of their non-preferred foods (M = 2.05, SD = 0.75), and 5 (56%) ate at least one novel/non-preferred food (M = 1.65, SD = 0.87). Parents of young children with T1D demonstrated use of parenting skills after receiving brief instructions, with more children than not trying at least one novel/non-preferred food.
