This qualitative research explored parental perceptions of the factors influencing obesity in children. Key determinants associated with barriers to healthy eating included the cost of healthy foods and the ease of access to takeaways. These were followed by competitive interests inhibiting physical activity (e.g. screen time). The results of this study are intended to inform initiatives to address childhood obesity, by better supporting parents and caregivers as key influencers.
