Abstract

The snacking habit of street food among school children has become a general habit in all socio-economic levels in society. Street foods are expected to contribute energy and other useful nutrients for growing school children (Manalu, 2016). The objective of this study was 1) to assess the quality of street foods in Elementary School with the indicator of Escherichia coli bacteria and 2) to recommend revitalising the school food safety team. The type of research was an observation that is descriptive with a cross-sectional design. The location was chosen based on the highest prevalence rate of diarrhoea in Surabaya. The research sample consisted of 109 street foods (including beverages) in 4 Elementary Schools. The results showed there were 42 (38.5%) food and beverages contaminated with potentially pathogenic E.coli bacteria and 4 (3.7%) food and beverages contaminated with pathogenic E.coli bacteria. It is expected to establish or revive the School Food Safety Team (TKP) to ensure that the food and drinks sold in the canteen and around the school are safe and healthy to consume.
