Enquête réalisée auprès des enseignants et des parents dans 49 écoles maternelles des Vosges sur l'obésité des enfants scolarisés en moyenne section

Abstract : Obesity is an important health problem which begins during early childhood. Many prevention actions have been tried in France to limit the prevalence of obesity. Among these actions, the French Agency of safety of foods (AFSSA) published guidelines in 2004 about the relevance of the morning snack which is given during school time. The aim of this work was to evaluate the knowledge of school teachers and of parents about the obesity of 769 children aged 4 to 5 years old and who are currently in the second year of the nursery school. This work focused on the practice of the morning snack in theses school classes and on the knowledge of the teachers about the content of the 2004 guidelines of AFSSA. These studies have been conducted in 49 schools located in the department of Vosges. The results showed that teachers and parents are aware of the problem of children obesity. They all know that children obesity can induce health problems, but they ignore what are the risk factors of obesity. Teachers and parents are considering positively the morning snack practice during school time. They do not understand the guidelines of AFSSA. In fact they do not know the content of this recommendation. To conclude, it seems that teachers are not convinced by the importance of the AFSSA guidelines about the morning snack. As the school time could be used to educate children and parents about theprevention of childhood obesity, there is a real need for better information of the nursery school teachers about the use and the dangers of the morning snack at school
