This thesis combined community-based system dynamics with a collaborative framework to identify locally relevant determinants of obesity and feasible community led solutions. This study, located in a rural and remote local government area in Victoria, showed improved readiness to change, successfully implemented a health promoting café, and reduced discretionary foods in kindergartens.
