Abstract

Although there are many studies on childhood obesity prevention including intervention studies on healthy energy balance-related behaviours in developed nations, such studies are scarce in Borneo. The aim of the present study was to elicit teachers’ and parents’ perspectives on a childhood intervention study: ToyBox Study Malaysia is aimed at improving healthy energy balance-related behaviours among preschoolers, focusing on healthy snacking, drinking water, reducing sedentary behavior, and increasing physical activity.
