Obesity-related behaviours of children with and without a family history of lifestyle diseases
Physical inactivity, sedentary behaviour and poor sleep are independently associated with cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and contribute substantially to the global burden of chronic disease. However, little is known about whether the profile of children’s obesity-related behaviours (physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep is different for children with and without family history of these diseases. This study aims to assess differences in BMI and obesity-related behaviours of children with and without a family history of lifestyle diseases (type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension).
