Healthy eating in the press: Using Morin-Chartier’s content analysis
in a Brazilian newspaper/Brazilian Journalism Research

Goal

Evaluate if Morin-Chartier's content analysis, when adapted to Partuguese, can successfully be applied to texts on health and diet published in a Brazilian newspaper.

Results

These information units focused on the effects of foods that have on the body and recommendations for which foods to consume. Most of these foods were in nature but there were some ultra-processed as well. The texts are taken from the Brazilian press, and the sources, when identified, are specialists on the subject. The texts are written with the intent to promote health.
