Social Risk Efficacy in Preventing Youth Obesity

Obesity prevention campaigns highlighting health risks and using a promotion orientation are pervasive. Yet, adolescents are especially susceptible to obesity social risks. An experiment conducted in French schools shows that social arguments change adolescents’ immediate behavior (real snack choice) and intentions to watch eating behavior. Health arguments have no effect on behaviors and limited influence on intentions.
