With childhood obesity rates on the rise, the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation successfully sought a $95,771 grant from the Mazda Foundation to see the Parenting, Eating and Activities for Child Health (PEACH) program made more widely available to families with overweight children.

Training is currently underway and Dr Magarey expects the first PEACH group to be held in early 2009.
