Abstract [en]

Background Parents' attitude towards children's school meals is less studied, it can affect the children's attitude, how they relate to school meals and their intake.

Objective To investigate parents' attitude towards school meals and whether it differs between men and women and depending on the level of education. 

MethodA web-based survey of 16 questions was conducted and sent out on the Facebook platform. The target group was parents of school age children, 188 responses were collected. The results were analyzed in IBM SPSS version 25.0 by chi-two tests, Fischer's Exact Test and Mann Whitney U test. 

Results It was a positive attitude towards school meals and the idea was that the school meal was healthy as well as a positive attitude towards the meal environment and serving. In terms of climate impact, participants primarily focused on the food waste and whether if it were locally produced. How it tasted and what the children ate was the main topic of discussion about school meal. Difference was seen between highly educated and none college / university education in how the general perception of school meal was in the parents' circles of friends when the highly educated were more positive. The men thought that the general attitude in their circles influenced their children's experience of school meals more than women thought.

ConclusionParents had a positive attitude towards school meals regardless of sex or education level. The parents did not think so much about the school meals impact on the climate. The parents thought that the school meal overall was in line with what they consider to be a healthy meal, which means a good range of fruits and vegetables and a varied diet that is cooked from scratch.
