Participate in a study – meal-time practices in long day care

This research project aims to develop a questionnaire to describe how children are fed in the early childhood education and care setting. We have questionnaires to measure how parents feed their children at home, but nothing that educators can complete about how they feed the children in their care. Developing a questionnaire can assist us to demonstrate the important role that educators play in fostering healthy eating habits among young children.

You are invited to participate in this study because you are an educator caring for children aged 24-36 months attending long day care.

Your participation will involve an audio recorded telephone interview at a time that suits you, which should take approximately 30 minutes. We can schedule this during the evening, or on the weekend, if you prefer. During this interview you will complete a questionnaire that is usually completed by parents, and asked how you think it could be used with educators instead. On completion you will receive a $15 e-gift voucher.

To schedule an interview, please contact Rebecca on 07 3138 8202 or
