Healthy Conversations @ Playgroup
This study will test the effectiveness of a highly scalable, multi-component lifestyle intervention to improve health and developmental outcomes for Australian children and families attending community playgroups.
The Healthy Conversations @ Playgroup intervention will simultaneously promote four key lifestyle behaviours associated with obesity risk (poor diet, physical inactivity, excessive screen time, and short sleep duration) and other chronic health conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Intervention effectiveness will be tested in a multi-site, cluster randomised controlled trial involving 60 community playgroups operating in Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia.
