Mealtime Rituals and Routines of African American Fathers of Toddlers Obesity is one of the most common health problems facing children in America. Parental behaviors are thought to influence children’s weight. Parents, including fathers who are engaged with their children at mealtimes, may play an influential role in the nutrient adequacy of their child’s diet. As the make-up of the family changes, those individuals impacting the nutritional intake of children are also changing and fathers are playing an increasingly active role. The purpose of this research was to identify mealtime rituals and routines of low-income African American fathers of toddlers. A focus group of six African American fathers of toddlers (12 to 36 months of age) was used to answer the research question: What are the mealtime rituals and routines of low-income African American fathers of toddlers? Data analysis, using methods described by Krueger (1994), revealed the following themes and sub-themes: Mealtime Rituals and Routines; Division of Responsibility; Family Constellation, with sub themes of Father role within the family unit, and Father role extended; Knowledge, with sub themes of Accurate knowledge and doing and Inaccurate knowledge and doing; Tension, with sub themes of Stepchildren issues, African American male stereotypes, and Respect. Implications for nursing include an examination of nurse provider assumptions and perceptions regarding African American families within King’s Theory of Goal Attainment, the inclusion of fathers of toddlers in nutrition education, the recognition of universal goals of parenting that cut across cultures, and the identification and development of culturally sensitive nursing interventions.
