    Stakeholder responses to governmental dietary guidelines: Challenging the status quo, or reinforcing it?2018In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 120, no 3, p. 613-624Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to explore how stakeholders in the food and nutrition field construct and conceptualise “appropriate” national dietary advice.

    Design/methodology/approach

    In total, 40 voluntarily written stakeholder responses to updated official dietary guidelines in Sweden were analysed thematically. The analysis explored the logics and arguments employed by authorities, interest organisations, industry and private stakeholders in attempting to influence the formulation of dietary guidelines.

    Findings

    Two main themes were identified: the centrality of anchoring advice scientifically and modes of getting the message across to the public. Stakeholders expressed a view of effective health communication as that which is nutritionally and quantitatively oriented and which optimises individuals’ capacities to take action for their own health. Their responses did not offer alternative framings of how healthy eating could be practiced but rather conveyed an understanding of dietary guidelines as documents that provide simplified answers to complex questions.

    Practical implications

    Policymakers should be aware of industrial actors’ potential vested interests and actively seek out other stakeholders representing communities and citizen interests. The next step should be to question the extent to which it is ethical to publish dietary advice that represents a simplified way of conceptualising behavioural change, and thereby places responsibility for health on the individual.

    Originality/value

    This research provides a stakeholder perspective on the concept of dietary advice and is among the first to investigate referral responses to dietary guidelines.

    Organization, responsibility and practice of food provision in home-help service: an exploratory study among professionals2015In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 117, no 7, p. 1921-1932Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - In the home help service, food provision is one common welfare service that involves different professionals at different levels within a social organisation. The purpose of this paper is to examine how different professionals involved in this sector view and describe their work and responsibilities.

    Design/methodology/approach - A qualitative study was designed based on interviews with 17 professionals representing different positions in the organisation, and an inductive thematic analysis was carried out.

    Findings - The various professionals' views of food provision mainly focus on the meal box and other meals seem to receive much less attention. The professionals also illuminated their respective roles within the food provision organisation by means of boundaries and split responsibilities, and expressed a view of food provision as an issue for outsourcing. The restricted manner in which food provision was viewed and described illuminates a risk of food insecurity for dependent people in home help service situations.

    Originality/value - The restriction of how food provision was viewed and described illuminates a risk of food insecurity for dependent people in home help service.

    Teaching and learning cooking skills in Home Economics: What do teachers for students with mild intellectual disabilities consider important to learn?2017In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 119, no 5, p. 1067-1078Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to explore which elements of cooking skills Home Economics (HE) teachers in schools for students withmild intellectual disability (ID) consider important for their students to learn.

    Design/methodology/approach - In total, 22 qualitative interviews with HE teachers of students with mild ID were conducted. The transcripts were analyzed thematically using the sociocultural approach on learning and knowledge as a theoretical framework.

    Findings - The elements of cooking skills that were emphasized included mastering the language of cooking, measuring, following recipes, representing an instrumental and task-centered - knowledge on cooking.

    Practical implications - The results of this study provide an insight into cooking lessons in HE in schools, not only regarding the focus that teachers give to cooking skills, but also to how cooking skills can be understood on a theoretical level. This has implications for both regular schools and schools for students with mild IDs since the elements that teachers consider important then guide what the students are given to learn. Teachers should be conscious that the planning of lessons should also be based on the students' specific circumstances and context.

    Originality/value - To the authors' knowledge, this is the first study that provides knowledge about how HE teachers reason regarding which cooking skills they consider important for students to learn. HE is taught to both children and adolescents, and it is important to investigate teachers' perceptions about the subject and how the teaching is organized, including cooking skills.

    Best-before date: food storage temperatures recorded by Swedish students2015In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 117, no 6, p. 1764-1776Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to investigate the food storage temperature in Swedish household refrigerators, to determine whether students use the best-before-date label to determine food edibility, and to examine if the study increased the students' interest and knowledge regarding these issues.

    Design/methodology/approach - In total, 1,812 students, enrolled at 72 Swedish schools, analysed the temperature on different shelves in their family refrigerator using thermometers (Moller-Therm (+0.5/-0.1 degrees C) and instructions provided by their teachers. A questionnaire dealing with the issues of date labelling, food safety, refrigerator storage and food wastage was completed by the teachers.

    Findings - The temperature at the back of middle shelves was coldest (average 4.8 degrees C; SD 3.1). A relatively high proportion of food items were stored at higher temperatures than recommended. The use-by date had been exceeded for 30 per cent of products, but the students did not rate these as inedible. According to the teachers, the investigation increased interest and knowledge among their students of date labelling, food hygiene, refrigerator storage and food waste.

    Research limitations/implications - Thermometers were used to measure air temperature on different shelves in the family refrigerator. Data collection was not controllable, as the students measured without supervision.

    Practical implications - The teachers reported that the study increased interest and knowledge among their students regarding cold food storage.

    Social implications - This way of teaching food safety would meet the aim of generally increasing food safety knowledge in society, which might have a positive impact on public health.

    Originality/value - The use of school-children as data collectors to determine refrigerator temperatures in private homes is a novel approach, which was an efficient way of teaching relevant facts as well as collecting large amounts of data.

    CHANCE: a healthy lifestyle in terms of food handling and hygiene2013In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 115, no 2-3, p. 223-234Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to identify knowledge gaps in terms of food handling and hygiene among a population in a selected city district. This study is a part of the project Community Health management to Enhance Behaviour (CHANCE), Life Long Learning programme of European Union 2007-2009). A certain vulnerable group, i.e. older people , were addressed. the study population was recruited by convenience sample. A questionnaire was used to collect data among citizens in a selected city district (n=251). The elderly (71-80+; n=123) were interviewed face to face, while the younger (21-70 years; n= 128) filled in their data on their own.

    One third of the respondents usually measure the temperature in their trefrigerator. However, one third revealed knowledge gaps relating to storage temperature for certain food items. Thirty nine per cent changes dishcloths onece a week. Twenty percent of the elderly usually put raw minced meat into their mouth without reflecting on pathogenic bacteria. There was no significant relation between the fear of food poisioning and tasting minced meat, changing the dishcloth often, or cooling down food properly. These results can be interpreted as a sign of knowledge gaps, indicating a need for imporved health communication.

    The study population consisted of consumers in a selected city district in Uppsala municipality. Therefore the results should not be generalized for Swedes in general. The collected data and the information of knowledge gaps have been used to perform a local health intervention. The results would reveal relevance for a larger nationwide survey that aims to identify knowledge gaps in terms of food handling and and hygiene among Swedish citizens. Data from the present study would be useful in the attempt to implement simple tools at the local level, in order to promote healthy habits among consumers. An innovative principle in the EU project CHANCE is to work from inside out. Studies of consumers´food handling in private homes are lacking in Sweden. the present study is rather unique as it explores private households in terms of food handling and hygiene.

    Distinctions and boundaries: Men's talk about food celebrities2018In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this article is to explore how a group of men relate to food celebrities in the contemporary Swedish food-media landscape, especially celebrity chefs on TV.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Semi-structured interviews with 31 men in Sweden (22-88 years of age), with different backgrounds and with a variety of interest in food.

    Findings

    The paper demonstrates different ways in which the men relate to food celebrities. The men produce cultural distinctions of taste and symbolic boundaries, primarily related to gender and age, but also class. Through this, a specific position of ‘just right’ emerged. This position is about aversion to excess, such as exaggerated gendered performances or pretentious forms of cooking. One individual plays a particularly central role in the stories: actor and celebrity chef Per Morberg. He comes across as a complex cultural figure: a symbol of slobbish and tasteless cooking and a symbol of excess. At the same time, he is mentioned as the sole example of the exact opposite – as a celebrity chef who represents authenticity.

    Practical implications

    Scholars and policy makers must be careful of assuming culinary or social influence on consumers from food celebrities simply based on their media representations. As shown here and in similar studies, people relate to them and interpret their performances in a variety of ways.

    Originality/value

    This is one of the few studies that target the role of food celebrities in contemporary Western consumer culture from the point of view of the consumers rather than analyses of media representations.

    A simplified health information model increased the level of knowledge regarding "five a day" and food safety in a city district2012In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 114, no 7, p. 910-925Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The aim of this paper was to analyze the effect according to knowledge and behavior, respectively, through a simplified health information model launched in a selected city district.

    Design/methodology/approach – The intervention in this study encompasses information meetings where two educational computer programs highlighting the “five a day” concept, and food hygiene were showcased in conjunction with a group discussion. In total, 92 people living or working in a selected city district participated. The effect of the intervention was determined by means of inquiries (multiple-choice) that were carried out prior to, immediately following, and three weeks after the intervention.

    Findings – A statistically significant improvement in knowledge of the concepts “five a day”, cross-contamination, and recommended storage temperature (for smoked salmon and raw mince meat) was observed, however, no major change in behavior was reported.

    Practical implications – The knowledge improvement suggests that the education programs, in conjunction with discussions, are a useful information model for raising awareness about the notion of “five a day” and food safety. The results of the study make it clear that there are difficulties in getting people to change their behavior, let alone getting them to participate in health education offered locally.

    Originality/value – Intervention projects are a communication tool that may be used in order to increase knowledge and produce behavioral change. The project is working from the inside out, i.e. it examines the needs first and then develops solutions for them.
