The Healthy kids Queensland: physical activity and nutrition survey, funded by Queensland Health is part of the broad-ranging initiative Eat well, be active - healthy kids for life, the Queensland Government's first action plan 2005-2008.
The survey provides an overview of both the physical activity and nutrition status of the state's children. It provides important information on nutrition and physical activity as well as heights and weights of children. Reports will provide key information to help prioritise health promotion programs and improve children's health.
The project was lead by Associate Professor Peter Davies, Director of UQ's Children's Nutrition Research Centre, and the Survey was conducted in 2006, involving children attending years one, five and ten in government and non-government schools across Queensland.
The survey's key findings included:
