Packed lunches now provide the midday meal for large numbers of children. There is, however, little information available on the contents of those packed lunches or on the nutritional thought behind them. Jennifer Clark, a community dietitian with Brighton Health Authority and Jennifer Platt, Reader in Sociology at the University of Sussex decided, therefore, to conduct a survey among schoolchildren in Sussex, to find out what they were eating and, if possible, why. Here is an outline of their investigation.
