The scientific programme is relevant for all researchers and university students and others 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
  • Sustainable 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, students and organizers of public school meals.
