Savica implemented a situational analysis of the food choice environment in primary and secondary schools in Klaten (Central Java) and West Lombok (NTB) districts, with a particular focus on the school canteens. A case study school in Jakarta that successfully implements a healthy and nutritious canteen was added as benchmarks.
In addition, we reviewed relevant policies and compared the condition in the canteens to the current regulations, and identified gaps and opportunities for improvement. The fieldwork was carried out in August 2019. This assignment was part of a larger project and delays beyond our control led to submission of the final report in August 2020. The findings of this study are disseminated through a peer-reviewed publication (expected later in 2021) and videos produced by UNICEF with the aim to facilitate the discussion on the best steps forward to improve the nutritional status of school-age children and adolescents in Indonesia and beyond.
