Our research team are working to improve the future of Australia’s health by supporting healthy lifestyle behaviours amongst children and families. Key areas of research include the measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour, use of parental feeding practices and the development of child eating behaviours, particularly the intersection of these across home and the early education and care setting.
