Mundane negotiations around official Danish dietary advice: connection, expert knowledge, and everyday agency

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

In this article, I argue that citizens’ relations with, and uses of, dietary health campaigns may be more heterogeneous than just pragmatic adaptation or tactics of resistance. The article takes a practice theoretical approach in order to focus on the links between the existing food practices and the socially expectable and normatively acceptable ways of performing healthier shopping, cooking, and eating. The empirical study, on which the article is based, is a qualitative study of Danish citizens, and the analysis shows three different, but related, kinds of mundane negotiations of the official Danish dietary advice, according to connection, expert knowledge, and everyday agency.
