– Concerns on children’s obesity and overweight have been related to food diets with excessive sugar and fat. Given the relevance of school meals in Portuguese children’s lives, schools follow governmental guidelines in order to provide nutritiously balanced and healthy meals. As imbalances persist, this study aims at understanding the acceptance of school meals by children, in the context of competing marketing allures of nutritiously poor foods outside the schools.
