Abstract

This research examines Spanish newspaper reporting about overweight and obesity in 2013, especially that involving children and adolescents. A specific corpus was complied with 183 news items, all published between 01/01/2013 and 31/12/2013 by the largest circulating Spanish national daily El País. The articles, reports and other news items were extracted from the online archives using the search expression ¿obesidad infantil¿. This small corpus study will focus on the thematic coverage over the year based on the 69 most relevant items selected from the sample, highlighting the technical characteristics, the key headline words, and the results obtained from the content analysis.
