Abstract

This study aimed to explain the food choices of first year university students by applying the Ajzen and Fishbein Model based on the Theory of Reasoned Action. Woodward et al (1991) satisfactorily used the Model to explain the food choices of adolescents in junior high school in Tasmania. Shepherd and Stockley (1987) also used this Model to successfully explain the consumption of high fat foods based on a person's beliefs and attitudes to these foods.
