Senior Lecturer in Public Health Nutrition, University of Wollongong

Dr Bridget Kelly is a Public Health Dietitian and early career researcher. Bridget’s research interests are in the development of healthy public policy to create supportive environments for health and wellbeing. This includes reducing children’s exposure to unhealthy food and beverage marketing, and the provision of nutrition information at the point-of-sale. To this end, Bridget had led significant national and international research in the field of food marketing and front-of-pack food labelling, which have contributed to high level policy discussions and reports. Her PhD specifically related to assessing the nature and scope of food sponsorship of children’s sports clubs, and the impact that this has on children’s food attitudes and intake.
