The purpose of this study was to understand the actual conditions of the dietary habits and to examine issues of junior high school students in a town in Gunma, Japan. In 2012, we conducted an anonymous self-reported questionnaire of all 163 students attending the junior high school in that area. Survey contents were as follows : Eating habits (such as taking breakfast and vegetables, food preferences), and food culture (such as awareness of food culture, taking locally produced foods). The survey resulted in a 64.4% response rate. It was shown that 100 students (95.2%) took breakfast almost every day. Only 6 students (5.8%) took five or more servings of vegetables per day. 34 students took breakfast with their family (32.4%) and 86 students took dinner with their family (81.9%). Less than 40% of the students knew about locally produced food (n=37, 35.2%) or took those products often (n=40, 38.1%). With the results of the survey's data, certain issues have been raised, and new procedures have been implemented. Dietary habits and issues are as follows : further promotion regarding taking breakfast, communication with the family while taking meals, promotion of increasing the daily vegetable intake, and understanding of food culture.
