Abstract

本研究では、北海道某市内全幼稚園を対象に野菜栽培活動に関する質問紙調査を行った。2011年度に野菜栽培を行った74幼稚園のうち85%の幼稚園は、栽培場所が園内、栽培物がトマトであり、全ての幼稚園で園児が収穫など何らか野菜栽培活動を行っていた。また、85%以上の幼稚園で野菜栽培活動で育てた野菜を好きな子どもや食べ物に興味・関心を示す子どもが増加していた。加えて、活動頻度が週1回以上の幼稚園は、週1回未満の幼稚園よりも食べ物に興味・関心を示す子どもや嫌いなものでも頑張って食べる子どもが増加した割合などが高いこと、保護者が野菜栽培に参加した場合はしなかった場合よりも食事の準備や後片付けに積極的な子どもが増加した割合が高いことが示された。これらのことから、幼稚園における野菜栽培活動は有効な食育である可能性、また、週1回以上の活動、保護者の参加により食育効果が高まる可能性が示唆された。

In this study, a questionnaire survey was conducted on the status of vegetable growing activities and the effects of nutrition education in all kindergartens in a city in Hokkaido. Of the 74 kindergartens in our sample that performed vegetable growing activities in FY 2011, 85% grew vegetables on site, 85% grew tomatoes, and 100% engaged their kindergarteners in some gardening activities (e.g., harvesting). In more than 85% of the kindergartens, the number of "children who like the vegetable they grew" and "children showing interest and attention toward food" increased. Furthermore, it was shown that compared to the kindergartens engaging children in gardening activities less than once a week, the kindergartens that held gardening activities at least once a week had a higher rate of children who began exhibiting interest in food and children who attempted to eat foods that they did not like.Also, it was revealed that compared to the kindergartens without parent participation in gardening activities, the kindergartens with parent participation had a higher rate of children who helped in meal preparation and cleaning up after meals. Considering these results, we suggest that vegetable growing activities in kindergartens may be effective for the nutrition education of children,their effectiveness may increase when vegetable growing activities are conducted at least once a week and involve parental participation.
