Kylie Hesketh is Professor of Child Physical Activity and Public Health in the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition at Deakin University. With training in behavioural sciences and child public health, her research has demonstrated the critical role that early behaviour plays in shaping lifelong health trajectories. Her current research focuses on the development, trialling and scale-up of family-based interventions to support parents with the promotion of optimal health behaviours (including active play, limiting sedentary behaviour, healthy diet and sleep) for their children during the early childhood period (0-5 years). She has authored >200 peer-reviewed publications and multiple reports for government and non-government organisations. She has contributed to the development of Australian physical activity, 24-hour movement behaviour, and obesity guidelines, writes for Raising Children Network, and has served on a range of advisory committees including Parents’ Voice and Butterfly Foundation.
In this lunchtime seminar, Professor Hesketh will speak about INFANT (INfant Feeding, Active play and NuTrition), a program designed to help parents and families with healthy eating and active play from the start of their baby’s life.
The Judith Lumley Centre lunchtime seminars are free and open to all. Held on the first Wednesday of every month from February to December. These seminars showcase the work of national and international academics/researchers.
