GONZALEZ VALENCIA, Daniela Guadalupe; GRIJALVA HARO, María Isabel; MONTIEL CARBAJAL, Martha  y  ORTEGA VELEZ, María Isabel. Identifying predisposing, reinforcing and enabling factors for adequate diet and physical activity in Sonoran schoolchildren. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.72, 00006. ISSN 2448-4849.

The study aims to give rise to a participatory reflection in order to identify mediating variables of behavior and environment that will lead to the design of a program for preventing obesity in childhood with a public health approach. These variables intended to achieve an adequate diet included portion management, type and cost of foods, collation hours and the use of time for physical activity, as well as its relevance in children’s health. In 51 group discussions with parents, teachers and children from 17 schools, in-formation was collected and organized by using the QSR NVivo 9.0 program. Using the PRECEDE-PROCEED model as a guideline, factors that predispose, reinforce and enable an inadequate diet and physical inactivity in school and at home were identified; also, they were prioritized according to their importance and the possibility of change.
