Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)


Efficient management of school lunch programs involves the operation of the food service to provide attractive, palatable and nutritionally adequate meals and the realization of the educational potentialities of such programs. These are recognized as important management aspects of feeding children at school.

This bulletin reports results of a survey of management aspects of school lunch programs in 25 Iowa schools which were drawn as a sample to represent the 622 Iowa schools in which full meals were served during the 1948-49 school year. The survey was made in connection with a regional study of the nutritional status of school children and the influence of the school lunch upon it.
