Abstract: Our consumption habits affect our body from childhood on, changes in eating habits can lead to various eating disorders and cause problems, especially in adulthood. For this reason, we need to pay attention to what we eat and drink throughout our lives, as a close correlation is observed between consumed foods and health. The primary purpose of the study is to survey the daily eating habits of Debrecen students, to compare their regularity and composition in terms of quality in order to reveal any correlations between the BMI-based categories and the quality of consumption. In order to examine this aspect, we conducted a questionnaire survey among 500 students of the University of Debrecen. There is a significant relationship between body mass index and food groups only in the case of coffee, but there is no correlation between the degree of obesity of Debrecen students and the frequency of food consumed.
