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 Abstract Added sugar intake during adolescence has been associated with weight gain and cardiometabolic risk factors. Moreover, dietary habits may persist into adulthood, increasing chronic disease risk in later life. This systematic review investigated […]

Change in diet in the period from adolescence to early adulthood: a systematic scoping review of longitudinal studies.

Eleanor M Winpenny, Tarra L Penney, Kirsten Corder, Martin White, Esther MF van Sluijs. Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act. 2017 May 4;14(1):60. doi: 10.1186/s12966-017-0518-7 Abstract Background: Late adolescence to early adulthood is a period of lifestyle change and personal development which may influence dietary behaviour. Understanding dietary trajectories across this age range may help […]

Seasonality in swimming and cycling: Exploring a limitation of accelerometer based studies

Flo Harrison, Andrew J Atkin, Esther M F van Sluijs, Andy P Jones Preventive Medicine Reports, Volume 7, September 2017, Pages 16–19 Abstract Accelerometer-based studies of children’s physical activity have reported seasonal patterns in activity levels. However, the inability of many accelerometers to detect activity while the wearer is swimming or cycling may introduce a […]

Understanding of the modifiable determinants of SB is necessary to inform the design of behaviour change […]
