Bottom Line: Several items were modified for cultural adaptation.Of 49 items, 39 items with loading factors >0.40 were retained in the final model.The confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the final model (twelve-factor model with 39 items and 2 error covariances) displayed the best fit for our sample (Chi-square = 1147; df = 634; P < 0.05; CFI = 0.900; RMSEA = 0.045; SRMR = 0.0058).

ABSTRACT
Comprehensive feeding practices questionnaire (CFPQ) is an instrument specifically developed to evaluate parental feeding practices. It has been confirmed among children in America and applied to populations in France, Norway, and New Zealand. In order to extend the application of CFPQ, we conducted a factor structure validation of the translated version of CFPQ (CFPQ-M) using confirmatory factor analysis among mothers of primary school children (N = 397) in Malaysia. Several items were modified for cultural adaptation. Of 49 items, 39 items with loading factors >0.40 were retained in the final model. The confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the final model (twelve-factor model with 39 items and 2 error covariances) displayed the best fit for our sample (Chi-square = 1147; df = 634; P < 0.05; CFI = 0.900; RMSEA = 0.045; SRMR = 0.0058). The instrument with some modifications was confirmed among mothers of school children in Malaysia. The present study extends the usability of the CFPQ and enables researchers and parents to better understand the relationships between parental feeding practices and related problems such as childhood obesity.

fig1: Factor loadings and error covariances of the final model of CFPQ-M.

Mentions: The final model of CFPQ-M is shown in Figure 1. The final 12-factor model contained 39 items, with factor loadings ranging from 0.43 to 0.90, and two error covariances. All of the loadings were with P < 0.001 which indicated that the 39 items were meaningful to the responding factors. Face validity also indicated that all of the items were measuring the respective factors.
