Abstract

Obesity and overweight among children and young people is increasing in most
countries in Europe and as a result schools are increasingly taking a role in both food provision, in promoting healthy eating, and nutrition education of young people by implementing healthy policies. At the same time schools are implementing environmental friendly polices i.e. organic procurement strategies (Mu, 2008). It is therefore relevant to investigate the relationship between the different components of such interventions. This study carried out a survey in primary schools in Denmark and Norway through a Web Based Questionnaire. The results indicate that there is an association between organic food strategies and the availability of healthy meal
options. But further studies are needed in order to understand the nature of this
association.
