Development and validation of a Food Preoccupation Questionnaire

Tapper, K. & Pothos, E. M. (2010). Development and validation of a Food Preoccupation Questionnaire. Eating Behaviors, 11(1), pp. 45-53. doi: 10.1016/j.eatbeh.2009.09.003


Existing Food Preoccupation Questionnaires do not take account of food-related thoughts that have a positive emotional valence. We report on the development and validation of a questionnaire that provides independent assessments of thought frequency and emotional valence (positive, negative or neutral).
