Bowles, Dorothy, Ed.
Objectives of this state survey of school food service programs in Wisconsin public schools focused on (1) nutrition education in the schools, (2) students' food selection practices, (3) improving nutrition education and (4) increasing awareness of nutritional considerations. Four questionnaires were administered to stratified, randomly selected, representative samples of food service managers, principals, teachers, and public elementary and secondary school students. Part I introduces the background and objectives of the study. Part II provides an overview. Part III reviews selected literature. Part IV describes the methodology of the study. Part V gives survey results. Food service managers' and supervisors' views about student involvement in lunch programs, principals' attitudes and knowledge about nutrition education and teachers' views on improving nutrition education. Student food intake patterns for six specific nutrients, influence of snack foods, and comparisons of eating patterns with weight were also reported. Data are presented in 22 tables and 10 figures.
