Researchers from Deakin University want to know how to better support early childhood and parenting services with child nutrition and movement behaviours. To do this, they are inviting managers or leaders of early childhood and parenting services from public and non-profit organisations to complete a 15-minute online survey.

Specifically, services that are well attended by priority populations (e.g., First Nations, multicultural groups, socioeconomically disadvantaged) are highly encouraged to participate.

The survey asks about what is currently provided regarding nutrition and physical activity, potential ways to provide support and implementation considerations.  Participants may choose to go into a draw to win a $100 gift voucher. More information and access to the survey is available here.

This project has received Deakin University ethics approval, project number HEAG H-56_2023.  Participating in this project is completely voluntary and choosing not to participate will not affect your relationships with the researchers or Deakin University. Please be assured that your privacy will be protected, you or your organisation will not be identified.
