Psychosocial Determinants of Children’S Healthy Eating Behaviour. the Role of Siblings and Peers

Childhood obesity is becoming a major public health problem worldwide and is closely related to unhealthy food consumption. This study explores the social influence of peers and siblings on children’s eating behaviour using a mixed-methods approach. Peers’ influence was found to be more prominent for children’s eating behaviour than siblings.
