ABSTRACT:
Studies were conducted on a group of 125 girls aged 13-15 years. Food preferences were determined in relation to 77 products, along with habitual eating frequency and amounts of consumed products, with individual correlations analysed for all products separately and joint correlations for 6 assortment groups. A significant interdependence between food preferences and habitual frequency of consumption was found for 77.9% products and a significant interdependence between food preference and the mean amount of consumed food for 83.1% products. Joint correlations for assortment groups were high and statistically significant, except for sweets. It may be stated that preferences in relation to a given product may constitute a good indicator making it possible to forecast its consumption by girls.
