MetadataShow full item record
This is the first reported cohort study of Chinese-Australian mothers' health beliefs, behaviours and information sources regarding their children’s health. More mothers in Australia breastfed and breastfed longer; evidence of the “healthy migrant effect”. All mothers underestimated the prevalence of overweight in their children. Mothers in China and Australia continue to access both Chinese and western medicines for their children. These results advance our understanding of the influence of maternal health beliefs on child health.
