Abstract

Children referred to pediatric obesity programs are at high risk of binge-eating disorder (BED) symptoms. Our goal was to develop and evaluate the Children’s Brief Binge-Eating Questionnaire (CBBEQ) as a rapid screen of BED symptomatology. Seventy patients between the ages of 7 and 18 years (57% females) completed the CBBEQ and underwent the Eating Disorder Assessment for DSM-5 (EDA). Reliability and validity were assessed by examining results of the CBBEQ compared with the EDA, as well as measures of sleep, depression, and anxiety. Twenty-four of seventy (34%) children met full diagnostic interview criteria for BED and 12 (17%) met subclinical criteria. The CBBEQ demonstrated 100% specificity, 93% sensitivity, and a 100% negative predictive value for BED at a cutoff total score of 9. If confirmed in larger sample, this questionnaire could be a quick and accurate clinical tool for non–mental health providers to identify children at risk for BED.
