Associations between Children s Food Preferences and Food Habits towards Healthy Eating in Japanese Children

Early childhood is the most important time for establishing eating habits and developing tastes. In the early years of life, food likes and dislikes are the primary determinants of food intake. People whose diet comprises more vegetables and fruits have greater longevity and are also protected from heart disease and cancer. We surmised that it would be important for a healthy life that people consume various foods. Perez-Rodrigo et al. Demonstrated a significant relationship between likes/dislikes for fruits and vegetables and the regular consumption of items from this food group among children and young people. Thus, children’s food preferences are very significant for their health. In addition, the food group consumption varies by socioeconomic, demographic, and life style factors in young adults. The development and long-term health of children are linked to food habits from early life onward. Therefore, the correct food habits may continue in the future of children’s life.
