School nutrition education programmes in the Pacific Islands: Scoping review and capacity needs assessment

The School Nutrition Education Programme (SNEP) is an intervention to educate school students on nutrition and food preparation with the aim of influencing healthy nutrition choice and practice at an age when life time behaviour habits are developing and in the wider community. FAO defines School Food Nutrition Education as consisting of coherent educational strategies and learning activities, with environmental supports, which help schoolchildren and their communities to achieve sustainable improvements in their diets and in food- and lifestyle-related behaviours, perceptions, skills and knowledge; and to build the capacity to change, to adapt to external change and to act as agents of change.
