Nutritional Assessment at School
We evaluate food intake and carry out anthropometric measurements, such as checking weight and height, at about four schools per year. Not only students are evaluated, but also teachers and school staff. We have worked with all levels of education, at public or private schools of Macaé and other municipalities nearby. These actions are developed within the scope of university extension and have no cost to schools or families.
The assessments are made by undergrads of UFRJ-Macaé, previously trained and supervised by professors and local nutritionists. Participants receive their individual results. Schools and the Municipal Department of Education receive reports as well. Workshops are held with parents/guardians and teachers to share impressions.
