Abstract

Background

National and international rates of obesity are escalating, and programs to modify established eating habits are having limited success.

Almost one in four 2-4 year old Australian children are overweight or obese.

Interventions to prevent obesity in early childhood are on the rise. However, recruitment and retention issues and outcomes to date suggests a gap in meeting participant needs.

Parents need both the knowledge and skills to establish behaviours that enable children to develop healthy food preferences and eating habits early.

AIM

To develop intervention recommendations to reduce childhood obesity by improving the infant feeding practices of parents, focusing on the transition from a milk diet to family foods.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
