Besides gatekeeping and modeling, parents serve as health educators and promoters, using intentional and persuasive communication to encourage healthier eating preferences and behaviors in children. Despite this, a lack of reliable and valid measures has limited the research on how parent-driven interpersonal communication about foods influence child food consumption outcomes. Building on the research in parental mediation of media consumption, and parenting practices in public health nutrition, this study details the development and validation of the active and restrictive parental guidance questionnaire with a sample of 246 children and adolescents at the scale development phase and another sample of 1,113 children and adolescents at the scale validation phase. Findings show that parents employ four communicative strategies to encourage a healthier diet: active guidance, general discussion, preventive restrictive guidance, and promotive restrictive guidance. The new measure was shown to have good validity and measurement model fit. Implications for future research are discussed.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/153842||ISSN:||1041-0236||DOI:||10.1080/10410236.2020.1773696||Rights:||This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis in Health Communication on 12 Jun 2020, available online: http://www.tandfonline.com/10.1080/10410236.2020.1773696||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
