Abstract: Despite universal access to health care and education, Australia is currently ranked in the bottom third of all OECD countries on a range of health and wellbeing indicators for children (Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth, 2013). Such differences in health and wellbeing outcomes are now recognised as a 'wicked problem' (Moore, 2011) because they are extremely complex and very difficult to address. The United Nations has recognised this, and has created a special body whose role it is to take the lead in addreSSing these social determinants (WHO, 2013). This chapter examines this 'wicked problem', with the aim of supporting early childhood educators to reflect on the role they can play in addressing these issues.
