Preschool teachers work witch food knowledge in the preschool : A qualitative study about educators' opinions about working with food knowledge in the preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

The preschool is considered an important arena for promoting a healthy lifestyle. Children spend the majority of their day in the preschool and lifestyle patterns are established at an early age that usually last a lifetime. One of the prerequisites for maintaining good health is to promote healthy diet, this is done by providing knowledge about the factors that may affect health positively and negatively in the long and short term (Härnell, 2009).

 

The purpose of this study is to provide knowledge about the work with food-knowledge in preschool and which opportunities that exist. The focus is on the teachers' knowledge and work.

 

This is an interview study with a qualitative approach. An interview guide with open questions was used and the result was processed with help from phenomenography as well as from a socio-cultural theory and didactic theory. The selection of informants consisted of seven different personnel within the preschool with different professional backgrounds.

 

The result of the qualitative interviews showed that the preschool's activities today do not plan activities that contain the importance of the diet. The meal pedagogy that is carried out is spontaneous and happens in conjunction with the meals. A lack of knowledge and a stressful environment are the main reasons for the informants not to work with food-knowledge in the preschool's activities. Furthermore, it is possible to read from the interviews that the preschools that the informants represent have a desire that food knowledge should be included in the day-to-day activities with the view that other subjects are more important since there are clearly formulated goals in the preschool curriculum. The informants say that they consider it important with good diet and that it is important that we contribute knowledge in the preschool's activities, but unfortunately there is not always the time.
