Les préadolescents comme ressorts des actions de santé publique : analyse d'un projet d'éducation alimentaire en collège

Abstract : In the national background of nutrition policies aiming at reducing obesity prevalence, local actions are implemented. This thesis proposes to analyze such actions through the way preteens appropriate a food education program which takes place in their class. By taking the preteens point of view, the author tries to understand the process involved in the perception, reinterpretation in different contexts (classroom, canteen, schoolyard) and dissemination of the information within the family. An ethnographic study was carried out in two socio-economically different secondary schools setting up a food education program in year 8. Through participant observation in class and semi-structured interviews in the families, we were able to generate singular configurations. Therefore, this allowed us to construct an interpretative frame for the assumed preteens’ attitudes concerning the diffusion of the project in the family. Our results show the importance of the peer group in the preteens receptivity of the project. The two junior high schools are different concerning the project’s image within the class: the program is far less well perceived by the pupils from the deprived school. This more negative opinion partly explains why fewer pupils from this school assume an attitude of messenger in their family. Therefore, the peer group effect can reach the family sphere.
