Maternal and/or child-feeding behaviors and food choices may be important contributors to childhood obesity. We aimed to compare food patterns and mealtime behaviors and to determine predictors of frequent intake of nutrient-dense and energy-dense foods of low-income African American (AA; n = 199) and non-Hispanic White (NHW; n = 200) mother-toddlers dyads using a cross-sectional study. Energy-dense foods were consumed frequently by AA than NHW mother-toddler dyads. Mealtime TV watching for AA and being single for NHW mothers predicted toddlers' frequency of nutrient-dense food intake. These findings have implications for culturally relevant interventions aimed at obesigenic food behavior in low-income parents of toddlers.
