Conference on School Meals 2022 June 8th – 10th

Due to Covid-19 we have decided to postpone the conference to 2022. We encourage you all to save the dates June 8th -10th 2022 and abstracts may be submitted from November 2021.

The research group “Food and meals in schools and kindergartens” at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences invite you to attend the Conference on School Meals.

Place: the Western Norway College of Applied Sciences, Kronstad, Bergen, Norway
Date: June 8th – 10th 2022.

The scientific programme is relevant for all researchers and university students with an interest in research involving school-based nutrition and/or nutrition for children.

The conference will include several topics (more details in the preliminary programme):

  • Health and nutrition
  • Structure and organization involving school meals
  • Cognitive performance and school achievements
  • The sensory aspect
  • Social and cultural aspects
  • Political aspects

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to share experiences and knowledge related to school-based nutrition and the many factors that influence it. Due to the increased challenges of childhood obesity and malnutrition, the conference will include nutrition, health, and nutritional guidelines. Additionally, the conference will consider the impact of related factors beyond the school meal itself, including eating time, associated costs, meal structure, the influence of social interactions and more.

Target group:
Researchers, PhD candidates and university students
