Abstract

Food consumption of school children is one of the determinants of nutritional status and learning achievement. Optifood is an application developed by WHO that can describe nutritional intake and produce food formulas that can be used as a guide for a healthy diet, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. This descriptive study used a cross sectional design. Data was collected by interview using a 24-hour food recall form and food frequency. Data were analyzed using optifood application. The results showed that school children consumed food from the Grains group and grain products (rice and noodles) 7 times a week. The meat, fish and egg group (burgers, fried chicken and eggs) and the savory drinks and snacks group (sweet tea, soft drinks, chatime, chiki, and chitato) 4x a week. School children very rarely eat vegetables and fruit. Consumption of foods that are high in calories and low in fiber in school children can cause problems of overweight and the risk of obesity.
