Resumen

DELGADO-FLOODY, Pedro et al. Perception of obese schoolchildren regarding their participation in the Physical Education class and their level of self-esteem: comparison according to corporal status. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.6, pp.1270-1274.  Epub 03-Feb-2020. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.20960/nh.1786.

Background:

adequate exposure to Physical Education (PE) classes contributes to a healthier lifestyle among children during their lifespan.

Objective:

the main objective of this research was to evaluate the perception of obese schoolchildren regarding their participation in PE class and to determine their self-esteem compared with overweight and normal weight groups.

Method:

in total, 656 schoolchildren (284 females and 372 males), between eleven and 14 years of age, participated in this study. Assessments were made regarding age, sex, anthropometric variables, children's self-esteem, and perception of participation in the PE class.

Results:

obese schoolchildren presented significantly lower values of self-esteem (p < 0.001), and exhibited the highest proportion of schoolchildren with low self-esteem (53%). There was a significant relationship between obesity and the following sentence: "I am the last one they choose for games and in games and sports"; 48.53% of schoolchildren with obesity responded positively. With the following sentence: "I look instead of playing", 57.4% of schoolchildren with obesity responded positively.

Conclusion:

the results revealed that schoolchildren with obesity feel excluded from PE classes and show low levels of self-esteem, compared with normal weight

schoolchildren.
