The purpose of this study was to compare similarities and differences between two samples—mothers of children under the age of 6 years living in the Dominican Republic (D.R.) and recent immigrants from the D.R. to the United States—on their (a) feeding practices for infants and young children, (b) knowledge regarding healthy size and weight and ideal diet for young children, and (c) knowledge regarding the causes and health implications of childhood obesity. An exploratory descriptive design was used, and qualitative data were collected through focus groups.
