  We conducted a survey of elementary and junior high school students aiming to clarify the actual state and issues of dietary life related to lifestyle-related diseases.<BR>  The subjects are a total of 411 students in Tokyo. We conducted a survey in September 2008. We surveyed items including eating behavior, food-related attitude and knowledge, frequency of cooking, cooking skills, and school meal time. Based on the survey, we were able to deduce the following issues and tendencies.<BR>1) The majority of elementary and junior high school students do not use knowledge on nutrition they learn at school in their daily lives.<BR>2) The rate of actually conducting healthy eating behavior and the rate of having the attitude and knowledge to lead a healthy dietary life tend to be lower for junior high school students than for elementary school students.<BR>3) About 30 to 40% of elementary and junior high school students rarely cook.<BR>4) Obtaining the knowledge of food, happiness in school lunch, and cooking frequency and skills are important to send healthy eating habits.
