In this section I suggest you consider some of the following. Write about each one separately using a new paragraph.
Maternal Child Feeding Style e.g. restricting how much they eat of certain foods, pressuring to eat, food as a reward
Maternal eating style e.g. what foods she eats
Maternal mental health
Advertising and media
Fear of children playing outside – safety of neighbourhood
Working parents and childcare
You could then also talk about how psychosocial factors affect maternal choices during pregnancy and infant feeding. for example if she is living in poverty, unsupported and stressed she is more likely to eat unhealthily during pregnancy and less likely to breastfeed.
