Feeling stressed?

Ever wonder what impact that may have on
home environments and children's health?

 

Parents  influence their children’s obesity risk through feeding behaviours and modeling of weight-related behaviours. However, little is known about how factors in the general home environment may influence children’ s weight. With many Canadian children consuming poor diets and not meeting the guidelines for screen time or physical activity, perhaps it is time to take a step back. Before focusing on guidelines, it may be important to examine the home environment and family wellbeing. In this webinar, join Kathryn Walton, Registered Dietitian and PhD Candidate at the University of Guelph, as she explores how parenting stress, chaos and family functioning are associated with children’s healthy behaviours and weight outcomes.

 
 



 
 


Kathryn Walton is a Registered Dietitian and PhD Candidate studying at the University of Guelph. Kathryn completed her undergraduate degree and Masters of Science in Applied Human Nutrition at the University of Guelph, and her dietetic internship at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Kathryn’s research focuses on ways to support parents in promoting healthy behaviours among their children. Specifically, Kathryn examines how aspects in the home and family environment, such as parenting stress and family functioning, may be associated with children’s health behaviours and weight outcomes. Kathryn leads the CFDR-funded Family Mealtime Observation Study (FaMOS), which explores the association between parent feeding practices, the home environment and children’s eating habits. Kathryn also works with the Sick Kids Centre for Community Mental Health facilitating prenatal and parent and toddler groups focused on healthy eating.
