Sammanfattning

This study examined body esteem in 10-year-old children. The study group com-prised 960 schoolchildren, 515 girls and 445 boys (M age = 10.4, SD=0.5). Analy-sis showed that girls who were overweight had more negative body-esteem on all dimensions (weight, appearance, and attribution). The overweight boys had more negative perceptions on only two dimensions (weight and appearance). Twice as many girls perceived themselves as too fat (20%), compared to too skinny (10%). Of the girls who perceived themselves as fat, only 31% were overweight; similarly only 33% of the boys who perceived themselves as fat were overweight. The chil-dren’s perception of their weight seemed as important as their actual weight and was associated with their body-esteem in the same way. Although few children had dieted (7% of the girls and 5% of the boys), the ones who had dieted had more negative body esteem than children who had not dieted
