    Abstract

    College students in Surabaya were surveyed to examine their knowledge of nutrition and its effect on their eating behaviors. The number of meals eaten was recorded weekly and evaluated based on gender, age, hometown, whom they live with, and the monthly expenditure. College students were asked about their beliefs and knowledge about different foods for their nutritional value and their intentions of eating these foods. Questionnaires were distributed to the college students from three private universities. The study revealed that college students with different gender, age group, whom they live with, and expenditure have different knowledge of nutrition. While, differences in age do not affect eating behaviors. In addition, knowledge of nutrition was related with eating behaviors.
