|Abstract: ||To ensure food quality and prevent diseases transmitted by them, it is important to control the conditions of production and distribution, as well as, safety offered to children in schools.
The aims of this study were the analysis of hygiene and safety processes regarding the preparation of meals in school canteens, as well as the development of a HACCP plan for use in these canteens. To help this analysis, a Checklist of 131 points was drawn up, grouped in 13 areas, from the reception of raw materials to distribution. It was applied in three different canteens with specific conditions. The development of the HACCP plan was made from scratch, considering the prerequisites for implementing the principles of the system, hazard analysis, the determination of measures and critical control points, and limits.
The results obtained in the Checklist showed a compliance rate of 48.64 to 68.83% with a greater number of non-conformities related to facilities, cleanliness, hygiene, and cooking.
It was concluded that in order to better guarantee the safety of cooked meals, it would be necessary to correct some non-conformities. Both the Checklist and the HACCP plan proposed here will enable the targeting of remedial actions in these institutions, contributing to provide healthy meals, with good quality at a particularly vulnerable group of population.|
