Abstract

STUDY QUESTION In women with young children, can a low intensity self management intervention prevent weight gain over 12 months compared with information from healthy eating and physical activity population guidelines alone? SUMMARY ANSWER Excess weight gain in women may be prevented using a low intensity self management intervention delivered in a community setting. WHAT IS KNOWN AND WHAT THIS PAPER ADDS Women with young children are at high risk of weight gain, face barriers to participation in protective behaviours against obesity, and can influence health behaviours in family members. Our findings contribute important evidence on programmes to prevent excess weight gain.
