This paper presents results that have emerged from research into the food consumption behaviour of university students. This group of consumers was selected for investigation because as undergraduates, individuals begin to select and develop food consumption and purchasing patterns in an independent way.

Abstract

This paper presents results that have emerged from research into the food consumption behaviour of university students. This group of consumers was selected for investigation because as undergraduates, individuals begin to select and develop food consumption and purchasing patterns in an independent way. The aim of this study was to analyse the relationship between socioeconomic conditions, food consumption habits, and risk-taking tendencies. We have identified several food consumption styles and highlighted the link that exists between eating habits and some variables associated with risk-taking tendencies.
