Abstract

Previous research suggests that the relationship between the multiple aspects of
children’s impulsivity, eating behaviour and adiposity may depend on measures used. Fifty 7-11-year-olds (28 female, 22 male) completed four impulsivity tasks (Go/No-Go, Door Opening, Circle Drawing, Delay Discounting), consumed a snack, reported on their eating, and were weighed and measured. Parents completed measures of child impulsivity and eating behaviour. Impulsivity and adiposity were positively correlated. Lower rates of delay discounting were associated with lower snack intake. Ability to inhibit a pre-potent response was related to dietary restraint and snack intake. Findings suggest a complex, multifaceted relationship between impulsivity, eating and adiposity, which are measure and respondent dependent.
