How Swedish schoolchildren with overweight and obesity are affected by physical activity. : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Förekomsten av övervikt och fetma bland 6 till 16 år gamla svenska barn har ökat i takt med att fysisk inaktivitet har blivit allt vanligare. För att övervinna fetman måste åtgärder göras för att kunna öka den fysiska aktiviteten samt att man måste kunna förstå innerbörden med den. Syfte: Att beskriva vilken betydelse fysisk aktivitet har för svenska pojkar och flickor i grundskoleålder med övervikt och fetma. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie, där tio artiklar har granskats. Resultaten sammanfattades efter att de mest meningsfulla enheter samlats och teman valts ut utifrån dessa. Resultat: Fysisk aktivitet har flera betydelser för barn med övervikt och fetma. Den fysiska aktiviteten har effekter på barns sovvanor, kondition, insulinkoncentrationer, BMI och syreupptagningsförmåga. Slutsats: Slutsatsen av denna studie var att innehållet i fysisk aktivitet har olika effekter på barns fysiska hälsa. Många av de effekterna har en positiv påverkan på barn med övervikt och fetma.
