with international experts: Dr Rebecca O’Connell, Thomas Coram Research Unit, UCL Institute of Education University College London and Professor Lisette Burrows, Health & Physical Education Pedagogy, University of Otago, who worked with us on the analysis and internationalisation of our data.

To show how children experience the public health call to become advocates for healthy eating in their families.
To explore family responses to obesity prevention education including physical education messages brought home by children from schools and how family relationships and interactions are impacted and changed.
To make a major contribution to both critical scholarship on contemporary public health discourses and obesity-related public health policy and education, by building knowledge about how food consumption is occurring within family relationships and about how families can best be supported to achieve healthy living outcomes.
