The present study examined psychometric properties of the Brief Autism Mealtime Behavior Inventory (BAMBI) when applied to a population of children with feeding problems. The new scale was renamed the Brief Assessment of Mealtime Behavior in Children (BAMBIC) for wider clinical usefulness. Parents completed questionnaires with the original BAMBI, the Child Eating Behavior Questionnaire, and the Parent Mealtime Action Scale. The revised BAMBIC developed with factor analysis had stronger psychometrics than the original scale and produced three subscales of feeding problems: Limited Variety, Food Refusal, and Disruptive Behavior. More Limited Variety was reported for boys than girls, and more Food Refusal was reported for younger children and children with special needs. © 2013 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The Brief Assessment of Mealtime Behavior in Children (BAMBIC) was developed with a sample of children referred to a hospital-based feeding clinic. The purpose of this study was to validate the BAMBIC with a non-clinic sample. Parents reported child demographics and completed the BAMBIC and the Parent Mealtime Action Scale (PMAS). BAMBIC feeding problems were more common in children who were younger, male, had oral motor problems, and had autism spectrum disorder (ASD). BAMBIC child feeding problems were strongly associated with parent mealtime actions of less snack limits, less fat reduction, and preparation of special meals. The scale psychometrics and the variables associated with BAMBIC subscales were similar to a previous sample of children from a feeding clinic. © 2016 Taylor & Francis.

This study examined the effects of an exposure-based behavioral treatment on food refusal in a 4-year-old girl who developed a fear of choking after an acute choking episode. Prior to treatment, the child had stopped eating almost all solid foods for 3 months and was primarily consuming a chocolate-flavored pediatric formula. Treatment occurred across the span of 2 weeks and took place at a pediatric feeding program. At the end of treatment, the child accepted over 30 new foods and was no longer dependent on a pediatric formula to meet her nutritional needs. © The Author(s) 2015.
