Abstract

 

The excessive consumption of food products that are full of additives is responsible for more health problems for the new generation. The aim of the present study was to reach the preference and pattern of food consumption among children and students. Four modes of food consumption were proposed: daily consumption, weekly consumption, monthly consumption and no consumption. A survey was conducted over 417 persons (males and females). The tool used in this research was a questionnaire. It was distributed to students of different levels (primary, middle and high school). The results of the statistical analysis showed, that among 417, 88, 82% of students consume packaged products either one time per day or one time per week. For The Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) of the daily and weekly consumption of foodstuffs by gender and school level, it has revealed three groups for daily mode consumption and two groups for weekly mode consumption. Each group of the above (daily and weekly) consumes a certain food differently. For the most consumed products per day and gender, we have found both boys and girls consume milk and cheese. As for weekly consumption, boys have consumed more fruit juices. However, girls prefer soft drinks. According to the school level, high school students consume foodstuffs more than other groups.

Keywords: food products, consumption, survey, gender, school level.
