Abstract: Assessment of eating behaviours represents an important aspect in the treatment and prevention of childhood obesity. However, there are no self-reported questionnaires measuring the eating behaviours of Quebec children and adolescents. The objective of the master's project presented as part of this thesis was to translate and validate the French version of the Child Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire (CTFEQ), measuring eating behaviour traits of cognitive restraint, uncontrolled eating and emotional eating, among Quebec children and adolescents. One hundred and forty-five participants aged eight to fifteen years old completed three questionnaires including the CTFEQ, a socio-demographic questionnaire and a questionnaire measuring the presence of symptoms associated witheating disorders. Anthropometric measurements were also assessed, and participants completed a 24-hour dietary recall to assess diet intake and quality. The CTFEQ was administered a second time after two to four weeks to assess its reproducibility. The validation results led to obtaining a questionnaire comprising an adequate factor structure,internal consistency as well as reproducibility. A positive association has been observed between uncontrolled eating and emotional eating. Both of these eating behaviours have been negatively associated with body mass index. Cognitive restraint was positively correlated with the presence of symptoms associated with eating disorders, the proportion of energy intake derived from protein, and diet quality. These results suggest that the CTFEQ is validand can be used among French speaking Canadian children and adolescents to measure eating behaviors associated with childhood obesity.
