Project
The project investigates the social and developmental origins and consequences of overweight and obesity, negative body image, disordered eating and impaired psychological well-being over the life course and across generations of parents and children in South Africa and Sweden. An emphasis is placed on better understanding the role psychological well-being plays on the development of overweight and obesity, and a special focus is given to identifying modifiable risk factors and social determinants of health, such as socio-demographic characteristics, family and social environment and social mobility. These factors seem to be important in mediating and/or moderating the relationship between body mass index and psychological well-being across the life courses.
