Description:
The dietary habits of adolescents have been a cause for concern for quite a number of years. Large-scale studies into adolescent eating habits have been carried out (Friel, 1999), but to date little work has focused on nutrition knowledge in this age group or the use of peer-led education to improve nutrition knowledge. The School Nutrition Action and Knowledge Survey (SNAKS) II initiative sought to look at his issue School Nutrition Action and Knowledge Survey (SNAKS) was an initiative which was commenced in 2000, by the Midland Health Board (MHB), Ireland, through the Midland Schools Health Project and the Community Nutrition Service (CNS) with Bord Bia, Irish Food Board and post-primary schools. It was initiated as a response to feedback from the Midland Schools’ Health Project, which determined, through post-primary school contact, that there was an urgent need for nutritional intervention in this setting, with teachers expressing concern regarding the nutritional status and habits of their pupils.
