My research will explore adiposity in children born to migrant and Australian born parents. The research study will utilize data from wave 1-6 of longitudinal study of Australian children (LSAC). The quantitative findings from LSAC will be complemented by a qualitative study to understand the cultural influences on the adiposity of children born to migrant parents.
