Abstract

With more than 20% of preschool children and almost 50% of women of childbearing age in Australia either overweight or obese, there is mounting pressure on public health policy and primary care practitioners to work with parents to enhance healthy family behaviours.1 In practice, however, a variety of system‐level barriers, attitudinal and behavioural barriers, and knowledge, skills and training barriers prevent effective engagement between parents, primary health care practitioners and other child care providers.
