Nutrition education in terms of school lunch survey on nutrition education system in elementary schools in ehime prefecture japan and consciousness of teachers toward the issue in elementary schools teachers colleges and junior colleges of food science



Japanese Journal of Nutrition 40(3): 131-140



The actual status of nutrition education and consciousness of teachers toward the issue were studied and the directions for nutrition education were discussed. Elementary school teachers and teachers of colleges where no courses on school lunches are given regarded the school lunches as the means to give training in social behavior, while those in colleges where such courses are given regarded the same as the means to give nutrition education. Of elementary schools, 83% had a guidance policy on the whole school level, 58% of which left the guidance method to the discretion of teachers, and many teachers observed defects in the guidance system. At .apprx. 20% of schools nutritionists participated in guidance. Many teachers in charge of school lunches were female teachers in their twenties and complained of insufficient knowledge of dietary sciences. Confusion and unsatisfactory guidance, which may contribute to the above and to lack of provisions in school lunches, may be resolved by participation of nutritionists in guidances, training of teachers in dietary sciences and improvement in guidance systems and school lunch provisions. Colleges (15%) and junior colleges (39%) gave courses related to school lunches and a limited number of students took these courses. Courses intended for a greater number of students should be included in the college curriculum.
