1. Watson, Sinead Hannah Jean. What's in that box? : An account of foods in kindergarteners lunchboxes.

Degree: MS, Health Psychology, 2015, Massey University

Through an ethnographic exploration, this thesis explored the basic process of how foods have come to be in the lunchbox, to question another aspect of the relationship people have to food, and how this contributes to what children are eating. Additionally, two socioeconomic areas were chosen according to their deprivation levels as a way to further explore how foods may differ according to socioeconomic status. From these two areas, discourses of children, their parents, and kindergarten teachers were collected, to gather multiple experiences and first hand accounts of food-related issues. Furthermore, health promoters from an Auckland based health organisation were also recruited for this research. Health promoter representatives captured another perspective of why and what foods go into the lunchbox, which further illustrated the possibility that the construction of the lunchbox is affected by a variety of influences. Multiple qualitative methods were used to uncover the complexity of food issues among participant groups. These methods included: focus groups with children during their lunch break, focus groups with teachers at the kindergarten, and a focus group with the health promoters at their headquarters. Furthermore, interviews took place with the parents at their home, whilst the lunchboxes were prepared. The main finding was that there were no significant differences in the content of the children’s lunchboxes, despite participants being recruited from a low or high socioeconomic area. Furthermore, two themes of accountability and health emerged in the analysis. Throughout these themes, the influences of neoliberal agendas were present, as participants often internalised and individualised responsibility and health issues. However, at the same time, participant groups were aware of the constraints that environmental influences had on decision-making. Together these themes revealed interwoven discourses that exposed a messy set of interrelated food topics. In closing, this project is unique as it looked specifically at early childhood lunchboxes, which is a current gap in the literature. This thesis contributed to a growing body of literature surrounding foods inside the lunchbox.

3. Wilkinson, Jeanne. Comparison of packed school lunches of boys and girls in primary schools in East London.

Degree: 2015, Durban University of Technology

Submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree Master of Applied Science in Food and Nutrition, Durban University of Technology, 2015.

Objective: To determine the contribution of packed school lunches to the daily food intake of girls and boys in two Primary Schools in East London. Methods: The study was conducted among 199 girls and boys aged 9-13 years. Three 24-Hour recalls and a Food Frequency Questionnaire were completed during an interview with the participants to gather data on dietary patterns over a period of three consecutive days. Additionally, the contents of one lunch box per participant were recorded and weighed. Anthropometrics and socio-demographics were also completed during the interview. Results: The three 24-Hour Recall nutrient measurements revealed a low energy intake in 91 percent for the girls and 77 percent for the boys who were consuming below the recommended Estimated Energy Requirement for energy. The lunchboxes contributed one-third of the daily nutrient intake of the children. The 24-Hour recall revealed an energy-dense, carbohydrate-based diet. The contribution of total fat (30-32%) to the total energy is higher than the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of 15-30 percent. The daily fruit and vegetable intake (215.1g and 216.9g), according to the 24-Hour recall and lunchbox analysis respectively, was insufficient compared to the WHO-recommendation of >400g /day. Although the mean intake of most of the nutrients was sufficient, a large number of the participants did not meet requirements for the age group. The risk of overweight was high (24% for girls and 29.2% for boys) with 1.5 percent falling into the obese category. Conclusion: The results of the study indicated a high-fat and carbohydrate intake and a very low fruit and vegetable intake. The girl participants had better food choices for the lunchboxes but the majority of the participant’s daily intake did not meet the basic requirements of a balanced diet. The risk of overweight in the age category is an increasing problem among low- and high-income countries. Nutritional education should concentrate on healthy food choices in school lunchboxes as a large part of the day is spent at school.
