ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to compare the consumption frequency of selected kinds of meat and its products by secondary school students from three regions of Poland (Łask, Kępno and Mrągowo). The investigations were carried out using questionnaires. The Kendall correlation coefficient was used for results verification. Poultry, followed by pork and fish are consumed most frequently by young people, irrespective of the region of their residence. Horse meat, mutton and frutti di mare are consumed least frequently. The frequency of meat products consumption is connected with the place of residence, and its structure depends on the financial situation of the population examined. Pupils from Mrągowo and Kępno, whose financial situation is difficult, often consume cheaper offal and fine-ground sausages. The lack of different kinds of meat on the market (game, mutton, rabbit meat, frutti di mare), their high price (fish, fruits sea, veal and frutti di mare), BSE fear (veal, beef), as well as undesirable taste (fish and frutti di mare) are the most common reasons for the fact that they are not consumed.
