Abstract

COSTA, Ester de Queirós; RIBEIRO, Victoria Maria Brant  and  RIBEIRO, Eliana Claudia de Otero. School feeding program: space for learning and producing knowledge. Rev. Nutr. [online]. 2001, vol.14, n.3, pp. 225-229. ISSN 1415-5273.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-52732001000300009.

The School Feeding Program has been mostly concerned with the provision of snacks or meals in school break. However, there are possibilities, which can be used by the Program nutritionist for developing educational activities related to nutrition, aiming at health promotion of the school community. These activities require the revision of the Program functions to use this space for discussions about conditioning factors of feeding habits, influencing factors of acquisition, cooking and ingestion of food, among other issues. To consider all the school activities also as educational ones would foster integration among students, teachers and other school workers, such as nutritionists and cooks. The promotion of openings to discuss health conditions at the workplace would contribute to the production of knowledge and to the development of continuing education practices, an essential activity in a time of rapid changes.

Keywords : school feeding; nutrition education; learning.
