Abstract

Students prefer to eat fast food for their daily meals-day. The lack of understanding and a selective and wise attitude among students are likely to contribute to a healthy diet. This study aimed to define the attitudes and frequency of fast-food consumption among students of the Family Welfare Education Program (PKK). This type of analysis was a quantitative descriptive study. This study population was 180 PKK students with a concentration in Catering, Batch 2015, and 2017. The research sample consisted of 64 people who were taken using a basic random sampling technique. This study's findings indicate that the attitudes of students of the PKK Study Program towards fast food are in the medium category, namely 28.2%, and the frequency of fast-food consumption, whereas students of the PKK Study Program are in a low category, namely 28.2%.
