Abstract
The typical Korean diet (Hansik) is a low-fat diet with abundant plant foods including a variety of vegetables and Korean fermented cabbage (Kimchi), which has been known as a healthy diet that could reduce cardiovascular disease and improve blood lipids level. Therefore, the aim of study was to develop the hansik education program to increase the hansik’s intake for children and adolescents. To develop the hansik education program, we assessed needs for the program in school dietitians as well as children and adolescents according to the education level. A total of 2,858 children and adolescents (elementary school 30.1%; middle school 34.8%; high school 35.1%) and were recruited in 2015 and 2016 in Gyunggi and Jeonbuk areas, South Korea and questionnaires were conducted by self-administration. School dietitians (n=221; elementary school 38.9%; middle school 34.4%; high school 26.7%) were participated in an online survey. There were significant differences in a nutritional education experience relating to hansik and preference for the hansik education program composition by the education level (p<0.001). Based on the needs of students and school dietians by the education level, hansik education program consisted of three parts; understanding hansik diet-improved awareness of hansik and its components, healthy eating habits-balanced food intake and proper serving sizes and hansik cooking classes. In conclusion, hansik education program was developed with consideration of needs and differences among the education levels. Further studies are ongoing to evaluate the program’s effect on the incerese of hansik consumption and the preventive effect on metabolic syndrome.
