Abstract

The study provided data on the magnitude of the risk for eating disorders in a child population in are of the Campania region. This area was representative of a homogeneous socio-cultural context. In the absence of previous regional epidemiological studies, this research appeared to be the first on this topic. The presence of a higher risk for eating disorder compared to those described in the literature should be confirmed by further studies on a larger population. Dance and physical exercise were confirmed such as risk factors for eating disorders. Finally according to the results of our research, the presence of the mother at the meal time may be a protective factor for the risk of developing and eating disorder in childhood
