Abstract

This paper examined the relationship between three context factors and food behavior of students in public universities in Edo State, Nigeria.  The study was an ex-post facto research design adopting correlation approach. A sample of 956 students participated in the study. Three research questions and corresponding hypotheses guided the study. A self structured 43 item questionnaire was administered for data collection.

Findings revealed that: there is a significant relationship between personal factors and eating behavior of students in public universities in Edo State (r.062; P<.05); there is a significant relationship between school environment factors and eating behavior of students in Edo State (r.078; P<.05); and  there is a significant relationship between peer factors and eating  behavior of students in Edo State (r.076: P<.05).
