Abstract

Parents saw the pedagogues as role models. An aspect of this is that the pedagogues ate the same food as the children during the meal, instead of just supervising and eating their own food.
This perspective was seconded by the pedagogues themselves, as they recognised their own importance, both as role models but also as facilitators, as they thought that it was not only important that they ate the same food as the children, but furthermore also encourage them to try new foods
