Abstract


This exploratory study aimed to 1) study a food consumption behavior of monks in temples in Dusit district, Bangkok and 2) compare a food consumption behavior of monks in such area according to their ages, years during ordination, education level before ordination, and nutritional status. The samples were 389 monks in temples in Dusit district, sampled by Taro Yamane’s finished table. We analyzed the collected data by calculating the percentage (%), mean (x),standard deviation (S.D), T-test, One-Way Analysis of Variance, and using Fisher’s Least Significant Difference method (LSD) to test the pair difference. The result indicated that 1) monks in temples in Dusit district had moderate food consumption behavior and 2) monks in temples in Dusit district, who had different ages, years during ordination, education level before ordination, had different food consumption behavior with significant level of .05. However, monks had different nutritional status had no difference in food consumption behavior.
