The Role of Muslim Parents in Familiarizing Halal Snacks in Indonesia After the Covid-19 Pandemic
AbstractThe ease of ordering snacks through online applications after the COVID-19 pandemic makes it difficult for parents to control the halal snacks consumed by their children. In fact, there are still many parents who do not understand what halal snacks are like. Whereas the knowledge and behavior of parents greatly influence the way children choose whatever snacks to consume. This community service activity is expected to increase understanding of the role of parents in familiarizing children with halal snacks. The methods are: a) the lecture method, used to convey knowledge about changes in the halal logo in Indonesia, the urgency, ways, and creative media to familiarize children with halal snacks; b) the question and answer method, used to provide feedback to parents as well as to get parents' feedback on the material that has been delivered during the activity; (3) the practical method, used to practice making a variety of simple creative media that can easily familiarize halal snacks on child. The results of this activity are: (1) parents' enthusiasm is very high; (2) parents' knowledge about ways and creative media to familiarize halal snacks increased, in the high category, seen from the average pretest 5.74 and the average posttest 9.0. The suggestion from this service activity is that the committee should not only invite parents but also invite their children together. This is to create a bond between parents and children in implementing the consumption of halal products in the area closest to the child.
