Many areas of life influence the health and wellbeing of families. This review identifies some of the evidence about what is known to influence family wellbeing. The focus is on positive behaviours that people have some direct control over. We found that six domains (or themes) are key. These are described under the following headings: eat, move, connect, learn, play, and give. Robust research evidence exists showing that each of these have relevance for the health and wellbeing of families.
