Abstract:

Three researchers from Australia and New Zealand will present findings describing the influence of grandparents and other social and community factors on child feeding and sleep practices. Lucy Bell will present findings about the influence of grandparents on eating and physical activity behaviors of their grandchildren. Rosalinda Richards will present data from a variety of family members that described sleep across time (generations) and space (geographic and social environments). Lastly, Lisa Te Morenga will describe research that explored the diverse realities of sleep in 14 M?ori whanau with the goal of finding methods to improve health outcomes for M?ori children. Taken together, this research highlights the importance of other caregivers in the development of health-related behaviors, and encourages future research to identify the impact of other family members including social and contextual factors that may impact health behaviors in families.
