We conducted a questionnaire survey about the health and dietary habits of 5,300 community people living in a rural area of Kumamoto. Of these response, 2,045 (644 men and 1,401 women) were valid (valid response rate 38.6%). We examine the relationships between the frequency of side dish consumption and health and dietary habits with the use of the data. The community people were divided into two groups on the basis of their frequency of side dish consumption as follows: high frequency of side

As a result, the frequency of side dish consumption was associated with the frequency of family dinners in men. On the other hand, the frequency of side dish consumption was associated with five factors in women as follows: satisfaction in their dietar y life, the frequency of meal preparation, the frequency of breakfasts, the frequency of soft drink consumption, and their like and dislike for vegetables. The frequency of side dish consumption was associated with the frequency of home-meal replacement, stages of change for vegetable dish intake, self-efficacy for vegetable dish intake, knowledge of ichiju-sansai (one soup and three side dishes), and the frequency of vegetable dish intake at home for both men and women. Therefore, it is necessary to provide more nutritional education about these factors to increase frequency of side dish consumption. Based on these results, specific measures for the promotion of side dish consumption should be considered. Vol. No. K K 文 献
