Physical activity and sedentary behaviour of mothers and children among culturally and linguistically diverse communities
Cultural diversity is increasing in Australia with around one-fifth of the population speaking a language other than English at home. Evidence regarding physical activity and sedentary behaviour of mothers and children of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities and understanding of how different factors interact to shape these behaviours is limited. This study will examine if the prevalence of physical activity and sedentary behaviour among mothers and children differ by CALD and non-CALD background and identify associated factors. The study outputs will improve our understanding of the physical activity and sedentary behaviour practices of mothers and children from CALD communities and the sociodemographic and home environmental factors shaping these behaviours.
