Blurb/Shorttext:
Globally, 10% of all children and 43 million children under 5 years are either overweight or obese (Livingstone, 2014). This statistic indicates there is a 60 % increase in childhood obesity over two decades. Obesity is defined as “abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that might have a negative impact on health” (WHO, 2013). This book was designed to explore children’s (aged 9-10) beliefs about healthy eating and what they manage to eat healthily. Because of each cohort findings were analyzed, presented and discussed separately, and because of that each cohort had different context and background, therefore, each group needs a distinct conclusion. Moreover, children had difficulty to make healthy choices among certain foods such as fresh vs fried fruits (57%) and vegetables, food low and high in fat (57%), sugar (57%) and salt (57%), and boiled and fried potatoes (42.8%). All these findings revealed that there were areas of partial understanding or misconception of children in this group that is essential to be addressed and tackled to help to avoid childhood obesity.
