Qualitative and quantitative changes in food habits of Chinese persons living in Lincoln, Nebraska, were evaluated. Findings indicated that these people do have a flexible attitude toward foods. Incorporation of American foods into their diet and a decreased consumption of Chinese foods showed that a continuous process of food-habit changing is occurring in this group. In particular, more American foods have been incorporated in their breakfast and lunch patterns, while for the dinner meal, the more traditional Chinese foods continue to be eaten. Factors related to the ease of adaptation to American food were investigated, and possible implications are suggested.
