              This book explores how corporations fund, devise and implement various programmes in schools as `part of the solution' to childhood obesity. Drawing on data from across the globe, it shows how children, teachers, school leaders and external providers (both public and private), un...derstand and experience `sponsored' programmes and resources that aim to improve children's health and encourage `healthy' consumption of corporate products. Challenging the idea that the corporate `war' against childhood obesity is normal, necessary, or harmless, this book exposes healthy lifestyles education as a form of mis-education that constrains what students learn about health, corporations and consumption.

              Thinking with Theory in Health Education brings together health education scholarship with a diverse range of social theories to demonstrate the value and impact of their application to associated health and education contexts. For the first time, this book draws together cutting...-edge research that demonstrates the productive and impactful ways social theory can be applied to the diversity of research in this field. Topics covered include digital health, and health education in sexuality, gender and health, food and nutrition, mental health and wellbeing, environment, and alcohol and drug use. In exploring these topics, each author utilises a different theorist or concept/s to compellingly demonstrate the critical importance of their application to a range of health education research contexts. This collection provides examples for both students and established scholars that demonstrate how to apply social theories to empirical and theoretical research, and the ways health education is improved through attention to social theory. It also explores the viability of various theories for work in this field, and their potential to generate new approaches to research.
