Estimated weight and height were asked about as wellas sociodemographic variables. Results: Using an exploratory factor analysis (EFA) three factors were detected in the FEHQ: importance of eating to family members, cohesiveness of family eating, and pressure to eat. The EFA detected two factors on the FRS: intangible and tangible support. A confirmatory factoranalysis (CFA) validated the structure of the FEHQ and the FRS with good goodness-of-fit indicators.
