Abstract [sv]

En stor del av vardagen består av att äta i olika sociala sammanhang där val hela tiden ska göras utifrån hur och vad som ska ätas. Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur unga upplever att det finns ett direkt eller indirekt grupptryck som kan påverka matvalet i olika sociala sammanhang samt hur grupptrycket kan se ut. I studien intervjuades fem informanter i åldern 17-25. Resultatet visade att det finns ett direkt grupptryck i form av direkta kommentarer till hur och vad någon äter. Resultatet visade även att ett indirekt grupptryck finns i olika sammanhang. Det döljer sig bakom olika kommentarer, blickar, konstig stämning, en vetskap om hur någon annan äter, olika normer i grupper, samt samhällets konstruktion av normer och stereotypa bilder. Det mest centrala för valet av mat verkar vara hur individen formas under uppväxten samt vilka sociala koder, normer samt regler som gäller i sammanhanget för tillfället. Vidare visade resultatet att ett indirekt grupptryck formas under uppväxten, vilket kopplas till Bourdieus teori, habitusbegreppet. 

Abstract [en]

A large part of everyday life consists of eating in different social contexts in which choices all the time will be based on how and what to eat. The purpose of this study was to investigate how young people perceive that there is a direct or indirect peer pressure that can affect choice of food in different social contexts, and how peer pressure can look. In the study, five respondents aged 17-25 were interviewed. The results showed that there is a direct peer pressure in form of direct comments on how and what someone eats. The results also showed that an indirect peer pressure comes in different contexts. It hides behind various comments, looks, strange atmosphere, knowledge of how someone else eats, various standards groups, and society's construction of norms and stereotypes. The most central to the choice of food seemed to be how the individual is formed during childhood as well as the codes, norms and regulations that apply in the context of the moment. Furthermore, the results showed that an indirect peer pressure formed during childhood, which is linked to Bourdieu's theory of habitus
