An approach to the food practices and contexts of students of secondary schools in general roca: reflections on breakfast. Diaeta [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.176, pp.32-40.  Epub 10-Mayo-2021.

Understanding human nutrition as a complex fact, joining the biological/nutritional with the social/cultural aspects in an indissoluble way, this study aims at describing practices and food contexts of students of secondary schools in General Roca city showing the potential of foodscape as an instrument to characterize breakfasts.

Thirty-one students belonging to the basic cycle of three secondary schools in the city participated, two state ones and one private, that registered with images all the eating episodes of one day of the week and one of the weekend. They were socialized using Instagram, each accompanied by an explanatory post. An image bank was created that later allowed the approximation to a foodscape and the analysis of food practices. The framing was done from a micro point of view: at a domestic level, about food, dishes and the table, including episodes inside the school. Aspects involved in biological/nutritional and sociocultural dimensions were analyzed.

In a preliminary way, a foodscape of breakfasts was formed. What was inferred was a breakfast characterized by a limited variety of foods and nutrients, processed foods of low nutritional density, poor in protein, fiber and micronutrients. The contexts were generally their own homes, and breakfasts were prepared by themselves and without company.

We concluded that through the images of the profiles it was possible to describe breakfast from biological/nutritional and socialcultural dimensions.

The idea of a foodscape allows the incorporation of other aspects related to food for study, expanding the possibilities of intervention in the development of food education, putting students in a more active place to think about their own food, which can then be translated into more beneficial food choices.
