Parental support is a well-accepted determinate of children’s physical activities. Effective health education strategies may also include facilitating parental involvement in community and school advocacy related to their perceived need for changes. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of health education using parental and educators’ perspectives, current practices and needs assessment.

Topics discussed in this compilation include moving beyond the hierarchical knowledge/power nexus in anti-FGC campaigns in Africa; consensus, strategies, and potential of health promoting schools; community as a setting for future-oriented health promotion in Austria; parental attitudes and perceptions related to their children’s physical activity and eating patterns; influence on academic performance on perception and health habits against noise by Spanish secondary-school students; interactive tools supporting prevention of cardiometabolic disorders in children and adolescents; and the importance of parents and teachers as stakeholders in school-based healthy eating programs.
