Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskriftPeer review


This article reports findings from a study of weaning from a perspective informed by practice theory. The overall aim is to examine how parents integrate convenience baby food into their everyday feeding practices. The focus is the embedding of convenience baby foods in the routines and rhythms of everyday life and the “do-ability” of different practices. The study is based on fieldwork with nineteen mothers in Falköping in western Sweden. Results show that local do-abilities emerge out of situated combinations of materials, competences, and meanings. Convenience proves to be an emergent category rather than a property of particular kinds of food.
