My research revolves around the promotion of healthy energy balance-related behaviours (EBRBs) among families. An important evolution in health promotion is the development of comprehensive intervention approaches, consisting of multi- components and/or settings. Promising effects on child energy balance-related behaviours encourage the implementation of such comprehensive multi-setting interventions. Yet, a common barrier is to reach and involve participants, more specifically parents, in the intervention activities. My research aims to contribute to a better understanding of parental involvement.
