Consumption Frequency and Perceptions of the Healthfulness of Selected Meat Products

Results from a sample of grade-level students suggest that they consumed tacos more frequently than frankfurters, hamburgers, nuggets, chicken, beef, or goat meat. The sampled students also perceived beef as more unhealthy than chicken or goat meat. Ninety-five percent of the students expressed some willingness to try new food products, and 80 percent indicated they would encourage their parents to buy goat meat products. Gender and grade levels did not affect eating frequencies of the selected meat products. However, more females perceived nuggets as unhealthy when compared to males. High-school students were also more likely to perceive nuggets as unhealthy when compared to students from elementary and middle schools.
