Because of poor uptake of these recommendations, the association of tummy time with other health outcomes requires further investigation. OBJECTIVE: To review existing evidence regarding the association of tummy time with a broad and specific range of infant health outcomes. DATA SOURCES: Electronic databases were searched between...

Abstract Introduction Previous studies have linked short sleep duration, poor sleep quality, and late sleep timing with lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in children. However, almost all studies relied solely on self-reported sleep information, and most studies were conducted in high-income countries. To address these gaps, we studied both device-measured and self-reported sleep characteristics in relation to HRQoL in a sample of children from 12 countries that vary widely in terms of...
Background: Participation in adequate levels of physical activity during the early years is important for health and development. We report the 6-month effects of an 18-month multicomponent intervention on physical activity in early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings in low-income communities. Methods: A cluster randomised controlled trial was conducted in 43 ECEC settings in disadvantaged areas of New South Wales, Australia. Three-year-old children were recruited and assessed in the f...

This study aimed to describe, and identify predictors of, physical activity and screen time in children attending out of school hours care (OSHC). Twenty-three randomly selected OSHC centres (n = 1068 children) participated in this observational, cross-sectional study. Service directors completed interviews regarding policy, training, scheduling and equipment related to physical activity and screen time. Children’s activity behaviours (moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), light physica...

Intentional teaching practices of early childhood education and care (ECEC) educators have a profound influence on children’s learning and health. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between educator intentionality and pre-schoolers physical activity. Objectively measured physical activity (Actigraphs) was measured on 225 preschool-aged children (mean age = 3.95 ± 0.35 years, 44.9% girls) from 21 ECEC centres. Educator’s intentional teaching practices in relation to physical act...
Physical activity has numerous associated benefits for cancer survivors. Compared to their urban counterparts, rural and remote Australians experience a health disadvantage, including poorer survival rate after the diagnosis of cancer. The purpose of this qualitative study was to (a) investigate factors that motivated or inhibited walking in rural participants during a 12-week intervention and (b) to investigate factors that motivated or inhibited physical activity behavior change three months p...
