How does the UK childcare energy-balance environment influence anthropometry of children aged 3-4 years? A cross-sectional exploration.

Hesketh KR, Benjamin-Neelon SE, van Sluijs EMF. BMJ Open. 2018 Jul 12;8(7):e021520. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2018-021520. Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between time spent in care, the childcare energy-balance environment, and preschool-aged children’s body mass index z-score (z-BMI), waist-to-height ratio (WHR) and sum of skinfold thickness (SST). DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Children aged 3-4 years were recruited […]

GoActive: a protocol for the mixed methods process evaluation of a school-based physical activity promotion programme for 13-14year old adolescents.

Jong ST, Brown HE, Croxson CHD, Wilkinson P, Corder KL, van Sluijs EMF. Trials. 2018 May 21;19(1):282. doi: 10.1186/s13063-018-2661-0. Abstract BACKGROUND: Process evaluations are critical for interpreting and understanding outcome trial results. By understanding how interventions function across different settings, process evaluations have the capacity to inform future dissemination of interventions. The complexity of Get […]

Diet quality and depressive symptoms in adolescence: no cross-sectional or prospective associations following adjustment for covariates

Winpenny EM, van Harmelen AL, White M, van Sluijs EM, Goodyer IM. Public Health Nutr. 2018 May 16:1-9. doi: 10.1017/S1368980018001179. [Epub ahead of print] Lay Summary Adolescence is a key period for development of mental health conditions such as depression. We need more information about factors which may be related to development of depression so […]

A cumulative meta-analysis of the effects of individual physical activity interventions targeting healthy adults.

Love R, Adams J, van Sluijs EMF, Foster C, Humphreys D. Obes Rev. 2018 Apr 27. doi: 10.1111/obr.12690. [Epub ahead of print] Review. Abstract Despite a large and increasing evidence base on physical activity interventions, the high rates of physical inactivity and associated chronic diseases are continuing to increase globally. The purpose of this cumulative meta-analysis was to investigate the evolution of randomized […]

Equity effects of children’s physical activity interventions: a systematic scoping review.

Love RE, Adams J, van Sluijs EMF. Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act. 2017 Oct 2;14(1):134. doi: 10.1186/s12966-017-0586-8. Review. Abstract BACKGROUND: Differential effects of physical activity (PA) interventions across population sub-groups may contribute to inequalities in health. This systematic scoping review explored the state of the evidence on equity effects in response to interventions targeting children’s […]

Barriers and facilitators to young children’s physical activity and sedentary behaviour: a systematic review and synthesis of qualitative literature.

Hesketh KR, Lakshman R, van Sluijs EMF. Obes Rev. 2017 Sep;18(9):987-1017. doi: 10.1111/obr.12562 Abstract Positive activity behaviours (i.e. higher physical activity [PA]/lower sedentary behaviour [SB]) are beneficial from infancy, yet evidence suggests that young children (0- to 6-year-olds) are relatively inactive. To better understand the perceived influences on these behaviours and to aid intervention development, […]

Changes in consumption of added sugars from age 13 to 30 years: a systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal studies.

Eleanor M Winpenny, Tarra L Penney, Kirsten Corder, Martin White, Esther MF van Sluijs Obes Rev. 2017 Sep 4. doi: 10.1111/obr.12588 Lay Summary Consuming foods and drinks containing added sugar in adolescence has been linked to weight gain and an increased risk of illness later in life. In addition, adolescence and early adulthood may be […]
