Open Access Acceptance of a Mushroom-soy-beef Blended Burger among School-aged Children

Download Article:
Objective: We tested children's acceptance and the satiety value of a mushroom-soy-beef blend- ed burger versus an all-beef burger in the school cafeteria setting. Methods: Students in 3rd to 8th grade completed self-administered surveys to measure choice (blended vs all-beef burger), acceptance, and satiety during normal school lunch hours. Results: Ninety-two students (47.6%) and 101 (52.3%) students chose the blended and all-beef burger, respectively. Only 24 (24.7%) students who choose the blended burger and 23 (25.0%) students who choose the all-beef burger would not choose that burger again. Mean satiety score was similar for the 2 burger types (p = .243). Conclusion: Acceptance and satiety of a blended and an all-beef burger are comparable among children in the school cafeteria setting.
