This chapter reviews the literature linking executive function (EF) to problematic, dysregulated eating styles and behaviors in children. Theoretical frameworks that aid in our understanding of problematic, dysregulated eating behaviors are described, along with empirical studies that measure various components of EF and their relation to children’s eating. Implications for prevention and practice are discussed and are informed by existing efforts.
