Thank you for your interest. This study is now full and registrations are closed.

We invite you to take part in a research study that will provide tips for parents and carers with a focus on building healthy habits for the whole family. Spaces are limited to the first 240 eligible registrations.

What’s involved?

Once you join, you will be randomised in to ONE of the following:

Group 1

  • You will receive 8 weeks of healthy lifestyle text messages (5 messages each week), and have access to a closed Facebook group with weekly local outdoor activity ideas.





Group 2

  • You will be invited to join the program in 2023, should it be successful.



Both groups will be asked to complete two online surveys. Questions will include your child’s physical activity and eating habits. 

After you have completed the study and submitted the second survey, you will be sent a $50 supermarket gift voucher as a thank you for your time.

  • live in the Illawarra or Shoalhaven region of NSW
