In 1987 Carol Sunderland was awarded a Churchill Travelling Fellowship and spent three months in Australia. Most of this time was spent observing the work of the Health Development Foundation situated in Noarlunga, Adelaide, South Australia. The Foundation has a statewide brief to implement a school based healthy lifestyle programme for 10 to 14 year olds in the area. The emphasis is entirely on primary prevention. Throughout the programme, the children monitor their own diets and parents, home economics and physical education staff are all encouraged to join in the programme and support the children.
