Abstract


Education About Healthy School Snacks and Early Identification of Borax Using Spice

Nutrition for school-age children are a significant factor in developing small and medium-scale food businesses. Unfair competition in the food business encourages the addition of hazardous chemicals to extend the shelf life of foods such as borax and formalin. This community service aims to understand students, parents, and teachers about healthy snacks and how to identify borax content in food using spices (turmeric). This community service is carried out at Ali Imran Kindergarten, Rappocini District, Makassar. Forty students attended this counselling, 35 parents and eight teachers. This activity begins with the presentation about the importance of healthy snacks and the dangers of borax and formalin. A demonstration of the use of turmeric to detect the presence of borax was carried out in front of parents and teachers. In the end, they were allowed to practice. The results showed an increase in the ability of parents and teachers (100%) to identify borax in food using turmeric.

Kebutuhan siswa akan makanan dan jajanan merupakan faktor utama berkembangnya usaha makanan skala kecil dan menengah. Pesatnya perkembangan usaha makanan tersebut bukan tidak mungkin mendorong timbulnya persaingan antar pedagang yang kurang sehat termasuk penambahan bahan kimia berbahaya untuk memperpanjang masa simpan makanan seperti boraks dan formalin. Pengabdian masyarakat ini bertujuan untuk memberikan edukasi terhadap siswa, orang tua dan guru mengenai pentingnya jajanan sehat dan cara mengidentifikasi kandungan boraks dalam jajanan menggunakan bumbu dapur. Pengabdian ini dilakukan di Taman Kanak-kanak (TK) Ali Imran, Kecamatan Rappocini, Makassar. Penyuluhan ini diikuti oleh 45 orang siswa, 40 orang tua siswa dan 6 orang guru. Kegiatan ini diawali dengan pemaparan materi mengenai pentingnya jajanan sehat serta bahaya boraks dan formalin. Demonstrasi penggunaan kunyit (Curcuma domestica) untuk mendeteksi adanya boraks dilaksanakan di depan orang tua siswa serta guru dan di akhir kegiatan mereka diberikan kesempatan untuk mempraktikkan. Hasil penyuluhan menunjukkan adanya peningkatan kemampuan orang tua siswa dan guru untuk mengidentifikasi boraks dalam makanan menggunakan kunyit yang ditunjukkan dengan semua peserta (100%) berhasil mempraktikkan.
