An examination of the relationship between maternal depression, anxiety, body dissatisfaction and self-esteem, child feeding practices, and obesity risk in pre-schoolers. A systematic review revealed moderate associations between maternal depression and pre-schooler obesity risk, and a possible link between both maternal anxiety and body dissatisfaction and pre-schooler obesity risk. The empirical studies however, did not support a link between any of the measures of psychosocial health and pre-schooler obesity risk.
