Abstract in another language

The social debate around children's sugar consumption has found its way into everyday discussions among parents. In this study, sugar discussions in online parent forums were analysed to identify parents' everyday cultural concepts of sugar in children's diets. The results indicate that parents' discussions about sugar in their children's diets focus less on health promotion than on the negotiation of parental identity, authority, and control, as well as on assumptions about the influence of food parenting styles on children's opportunities to participate in the respective food culture. Throughout the different stages of childhood, parents are exposed to various challenges in which they must continuously legitimise and adjust their food parenting practices. The results of the study provide implications for nutrition research, communication, and education.
