The objective of this study was to evaluate the acceptance of breaded fish (Engraulis anchoita) by public school students aged 5–18 (n=830) from two cities in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. First, by using multivariate analyses, the authors sought to assess the effect of the variables sex, city, and age on the acceptance of breaded fish. The second objective was to develop a predictive model that was applicable to different levels of acceptance. The results showed that the significant variable for the acceptance of breaded fish was age. According to the linear model and the descriptive statistics, an inverse relationship exists between the acceptance of breaded fish in school meals and the age of the children, possibly a consequence of the children being more critical in their food preference with the rising age, making the insertion of a new food that is not part of their eating behaviour more difficult.
