Summary This thesis investigated opportunities to reduce sedentary behaviour in early childhood (0-5 years). Building on findings from previous research and an investigation of correlates of sedentary behaviour, a parent-focused, text message-delivered intervention was designed and implemented. Parents reported high acceptability and the intervention showed significant improvements on children’s screen time.
