Abstract [en]

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is twofold: first, to explore to what extent teachers eat together withpupils during school lunches and their attitudes toward using these lunches to reach the educational goalsstated in the Swedish compulsory school curriculum; and second, to study to what degree teachers seethemselves and school meal personnel as role models during school lunches.Design/methodology/approach – A questionnaire was completed by 3,629 teachers in Swedish schools.Findings – In total, 90 percent of the teachers ate lunch together with the pupils one or more days per week.The majority reported that meals were fully (54 percent), or partially (40 percent) subsidized when they wereeating with pupils. In total, 72 percent thought that school lunches should be considered part of the school’seducational activities while 28 percent thought that it should be a time to get a break from educationalactivities. Most teachers thought that school lunches could be useful for learning about the issues of foodwaste and healthy eating while there were more diverse views on using lunches for learningabout fundamental values. A majority of the teachers considered themselves to be role models in theschool meal situation.Practical implications – The authors suggest that the educational component of the schoolmeal per se shouldbe regulated in the Educational Act together with guidelines from the Swedish National Agency for Education.Originality/value – This study is unique since it covers a previously little studied area; teachers’ attitudestoward using the school lunch situation for educational purposes.
