The purpose of this study was to examine the status of environmentally-friendly ingredients and dietitians' perceptions toward them in order to find for improvement. Data was collected from questionnaires completed by 202 school dietitians and nutrition teachers in Chungbuk, and this data was analyzed utilizing the SPSS 20.0 program. The results obtained from this study were as follows: 'mixed grains (58.9%)' and 'eggs (36.6%)' were found to be the most used environmentally-friendly ingredients. 81.7% of the respondents said they 'never used' marine products, whereas 'fruits (43.6%)', 'pork (40.8%)', and 'fish (54.5%)' were the most preferred ingredients. Dietitians and nutrition teachers used environmentally-friendly marine products less than other ingredients, had a poor understanding about environmentally-friendly marine products, and demonstrated low reliability and belief in the necessity of the system. In order to verify the environmentally-friendly status of the ingredients, marks on the product and documents of certification were mostly used. In order to improve the supply system, a more strict tracking system in the distribution process by securing more reliable suppliers is required.

본 연구는 충북지역 영양(교)사들을 대상으로 친환경 식재료에 대해 학교급식에 적용하고 있는 이용실태, 인식 및 의견, 친환경 급식제도 개선을 위한 요구도와 구매절차 개선방안을 조사하였다. 가장 사용빈도가 높은 친환경 농산물은 '잡곡류(58.9%)'였고 가장 사용하고 싶은 친환경 농산물은 '과실류(43.6%)'로 나타났다. 가장 사용빈도가 높은 친환경축산물은 '계란(36.6%)'이었고 가장 사용하고 싶은 친환경축산물로는 '돼지고기(40.8%)'로 응답되었다. 친환경 수산물을 사용한 적이 없다는 응답은 81.7%로 매우 높게 나타났고, 가장 사용하고 싶은 수산물은 '어류(54.5%)'로 조사되었다. 친환경 식재료 선택 시 '신선도'가 가장 중요시 되었고, 수산물은 농 축산물에 비해 친환경의 사용빈도가 매우 낮았고 수산물 인증에 대한 개념의 이해 정도가 낮게 나타났으며, 인증에 대한 신뢰도와 필요성도 낮은 수준으로 응답되었다. 중요도는 '친환경 인증 여부'와 '공급능력'이 높게 평가되었다. 친환경 식재료 공급업체의 납품능력에 대해 농 축산물은 보통 정도로 나타난 반면에 수산물의 경우 납품능력이 낮은 것으로 조사되었다. 친환경 식재료를 검수하기 위해 농산물은 '부착된 마크', 축산물은 '친환경 인증서류', 수산물은 '친환경 인증서류', 가공식품류는 '부착된 마크'를 각각 활용하였다. 친환경 식재료 최소 품질 요구 기준으로 무농약 농산물 수준 이상이 납품되어야 한다는 의견이 가장 많았다. 친환경 급식제도 개선을 위해 신뢰할 수 있는 납품업체 확보에 대한 요구도가 가장 높았고, 구매절차에 대한 개선안으로는 친환경 학교급식 전담센터 설치에 대한 요구도가 높게 조사되었다.
