The aim of the paper is to determine the attitudes of international students towards Turkish foods. The present research was carried out on students educated in Turkish in Gazi University, Turkish Learning Application and Research Center (TOMER) in Ankara. Since the number of international students is limited, the research is performed on all the students. Out of the total 212 students, 50 students from the Turkish Republics, 68 students from the Middle East, 38 students from the Balkan countries, 26 students from Africa and 30 students from East Asia participated in the research on voluntary basis. During the research it was noticed that among students who prepare their own food at home or dorms, female students from Turkey preferred preparing food more than male students from same place (p<.05). The reason that female students’ attitudes are more positive than male students’ attitudes on the “inquisitiveness about new food” subscale is that females are typically more curious and interested in foods of different countries (p<.05).
This study is conducted to determine the effect of season on beverage consumption of parents and children. It was performed on randomly selected 240 families which consist of 130 girls and 110 boys at the age of 3-5 in full time preschools. While most of the children have diner with their families, it was determined that they have lunch together less frequently. It was observed that children's favorite beverages are coke, fresh-squeezed fruit juice and milk whereas they dislike water and buttermilk drink. As regards to winter and summer seasons children drink tea because parents drink tea everyday and also according to the conduct of parents, they drink fresh-squeezed fruit juice and tomato juice once in fifteen days. It was observed that in summer and winter while parents drink instant coffee or Turkish coffee in a few times a week during breakfast, children never drink instant coffee or Turkish coffee.
