This thesis describes the relationships between fathers’ and young children’s obesity-related behaviours. The findings illustrate the importance of fathers in the obesity-related behaviours of young children and underscore the necessity of paternal involvement in family-based research to reduce the negative consequences of poor child health behaviours in later life.
