In recent years, the dietary lifestyle and lack of physical activity has been regarded as a problem for Japanese youth. We have completed a trial Shokuiku (Dietary education) class which consisted of 13 female students who also acted as experimental participants. We monitored their regular eating habits and physical activity levels. The results indicated that the participants consumed 366g/day of cereals, 37g/d potato, 75g/d green/yellow vegetables, 112g/d other vegetables, 44g/d fishes, 80g/d meats, 22g/d egg, 66g/d of sweets/snacks. The daily energy intake of the participants closely matched the Estimated Energy Requirement. Fat energy ratio was 29.4%, and carbohydrate energy ratio was 56.8%. Most of the participants didn't reach to the EAR level of calcium, iron, and soluble vitamins. For these participants, the lack of iron and dietary fiber was obvious. These results suggested that they need to acquire the knowledge and the know-how to consume the necessary nutrients. According to the results of the Lifecoder, the step counts of female participants were 10,434±2,606 and the walking speed was relatively slow. These results suggested that they need to improve their walking pace for their health promotion.
