GODOY BERTHET, Carolina; DENEGRI CORIA, Marianela  y  SCHNETTLER MORALES, Berta. Protective Factors and Risks in Eating Behaviours of Mothers and Children. Rev. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.2, pp.61-73. ISSN 0716-8039.

To explore protective and risk factors associated with eating habits, 18 families of differing family structures and socioeconomic levels were contacted. 18 mothers participated, aged between 31 and 53 years and an average of two children. One adolescent per mother was selected, 10 girls and 8 boys (aged between 10 and 17). A semi-structured interview was applied to participants, addressing topics related to socialization and eating habits. Interviews’ content was analyzed using atlas.ti software, following guidelines of grounded theory. Results illustrate that there are positive conditions in the families studied that reveal defined eating routines, use of direct conversation with the children and body monitoring strategies. Current barriers present in food socialization are evident. Use of structured parental strategies, permissive feeding with adolescents, lack of accessibility to purchasing healthy foods, mothers’ comments about their children’s bodies and interparental conflict are factors that act as possible risk promoters for healthy eating.
