MARTINEZ ESPINOSA, Alejandro. Governmental attention to excess weight in children of school age in Mexico in two sexennial periods: from microfoundations to family mediation. Inter disciplina [online]. 2019, vol.7, n.19, pp.69-93.  Epub 25-Ene-2021. ISSN 2448-5705.

In México the prevention of overweight and obesity has been focused in early ages and the food environment but guided by assumptions centered in individuals. In this text the aim is to identify the obesity policies approach especially for childhood in Mexico as well as some of their limitations. The last two six-year presidential cycle government initiatives on obesity are presented and it is explored the evidence that shows the relevance of the household mediation to understand excess weight since childhood. In conceiving population as an aggregate of individuals, governmental actions do not take account of the interaction processes that allow or hinder the environment effects such as those formed at home. There is national and international evidence that shows the pertinence to analyses the preferences and practices, in terms of the conditions where are defined as much as the context where they operate.
