The findings revealed that the three parents had guidance for administering nutrition programs, including preparation, delivery, and assessment procedures. Parental assistance at the preparation level involves consultations with teachers and administrators on assessing age-specific food consumption, dietary patterns, and children's history of allergies. In the implementation process, parental encouragement involves children's involvement in feeding together, monitoring body weight and height, and consuming vitamins periodically organized by the boss.
