ABSTRACT

The discussion of issues related to the eating behavior of children and adolescents has gained worldwide relevance in recent years. For instance, the problem of childhood obesity has significant impact on the individual and also on society. This paper analyzes the influence of parents and school on the food literacy of children and adolescents, contributing to the Transformative Consumer Research in the understanding of food well-being, more specifically regarding food literacy. We conducted qualitative research combining open-ended questionnaires answered by students aged 10 to 14 years with interviews with school coordinators. Results show that to some extent parents and children talk about food. However, this dietary dialogue still occurs predominantly from the perspective of health / nutrition. Additionally, schools lack a more active role in promoting food literacy among students.
