This paper looks at the health and development of Asian children growing up in NZ, birth- two years. Using a combined health and sociocognitive approach, we’ll use the Growing Up In NZ data to answer the following questions:How healthy are Asian children in NZ?, how do health beliefs of parents and families impact their health, is there a difference between children living in NZ-born and migrant Asian families? This paper is intended to be the first in a series looking at the longitudinal data from GUiNZ with implications for health policy and practice
