1 Eating behavior of babies and little chidren
Statistical investigations of the sucklings and foods at weaning are being pursued in the babies, who were born from April of 1994 to March of 1995 and their mothers.
2.Drinkables at dinner
Food life (eating habit) of school children, who have lived in Okayama city, was investigated in 1990-1991.
The menu differed little from child to child, while the drinkables at dinner were great variety among individuals, such as miso soup, clear soup, water, tea, juice, and soft drink. On the contrary, the school children in the farm area of Niigata Prefecture, as investigated in 1994-1995, took mainly water or tea at dinner.
3.Relation between cating behavior and occlusion
The people who were malocclusion (out of condition between the jaws and the teeth) tended to swallow the foods before chewing them well. At this time, soup and other drinkables were helpful to the act of swallowing.
4 Comparison of occlusion between Japanese and Chinese
The differences of the occlusion between Japanese and Chinese were measured by OCCLUZER (FUJIFILM Co.). But there were no significant differences in the occlusal force and pressure between Japanese and Chinese, though their eating habits were deferent.
