What is the Picture Project?
The Picture Project is an online survey of 2,000 Australians, aged 18-30, in 2017/18 and repeated in 2019/20. It has been set up to look at the eating behaviour, physical activity, sedentary behaviours and health of young adults and to track changes that may occur over time.
The project is funded by the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN), a research institute within the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University.
Why are we doing this
Young adult life is commonly a time of many changes, including changes in living circumstances, work arrangements or commitments, financial circumstances and other major life transitions such as marriage and starting families.
These major life transitions have the potential to impact on health behaviours such as nutrition and physical activity. These years present a substantial risk for weight gain, and development of poor lifestyle habits.
The collection of important information from the Picture Project about eating behaviours, health and physical activity behaviours of young adults could make a significant contribution to the understanding of complex influences on these health behaviors and the findings could be used to develop programs or direct funding to help maintain healthy lifestyle during this phase of life.
