In recent years, appearance, and body image in particular, has become a very important concern not only for adults but also for children. Children's self-evaluation of their bodies is critical in the occurrence of eating disorders. This study aims to conduct (1) a validity and reliability analysis of the Children's Body Image Scale (CBIS) adapted to the Turkish culture and (2) the relationship between body satisfaction, self-worth and physical appearance. The psychometric properties of the CBIS were examined on a sample of 473 (211 girls and 262 boys) children aged 8-11 (mean 9.38). The data obtained from boys and girls were divided into two groups according to grade and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The reliability level of the scale was at an acceptable level, and a statistically significant relationship was found between the scale's Body Mass Index and the dimensions of Self-Perception Profile. The results revealed that there is a significant relationship between body satisfaction and general self-worth and physical appearance. In addition, the scores obtained on the CBIS after a 3-week period showed significant internal consistency and test-retest reliability. The analyses revealed that the CBIS is a valid and reliable measurement tool for Turkish children. The results of the study can be a useful tool for education and health professionals that they need screening tools to help them detect body dissatisfaction. The study also showed some correlates of high body dissatisfaction in children that can be used before the rise in eating disorders in adolescence.
