Børn og Sundhed: Børns forståelse af det sunde liv og udfaldet af danske sundhedsfremmekurser

    Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

    Resumé

    Gennem de sidste årtier er antallet af overvægtige og fede steget i den danske befolkning. Dette faktum har medført et stort politisk fokus på sundhedsfremme, særligt for børn og unge for at forhindre yderligere eskalation. Det herskende politiske synspunkt på sagen har skabt følgende konklusion: Udvidelser i livvidder skaber udvidelser på statsbudgettet på grund af nedsat arbejdskraft og høje udgifter til sundhedsvæsnet. Hvor industrien ser profitpotentiale i befolkningens madglæde, frygter staten kaos og en forpligtelse til at handle, før den såkaldte fedme-epidemi kommer ud af kontrol. Regeringens sundhedsprioriteter reproduceres i kommunale familiekurser, hvor børn og deres forældre tilbydes en chance for at find inspiration og viden om en sundere livsstil og tilbydes redskaber til at genetablere en bedre tilgang til sundhed. Ved at undersøge børns sundhedstilgange, viden og adfærd bliver det klart, at Forskelligartede mekanismer I børns hverdagsliv og sociale omgivelser determinerer og karakteriserer børns sundhedstilstand, og at nogle af disse mekanismer udgør en sundhedsforståelse, der er karakteriseret af en større form for kompleksitet. Formålet med dette paper er at præsentere nogle af nøglediskussionerne i mit ph.d.-projekt om barndom og sundhedsforståelser ved at stille det overordnede spørgsmål: Hjælper familieorienterede sundhedskurser til at knække fedmekurven, og i overensstemmelse med hvis forståelse af sundhed er det muligt at bliver sundere and leve det gode liv ved at deltage i statsligt finansierede kurser?
