The effects of the type of menu planning, and the number of different foods on food preferences and consumption are discussed. Seventy-two volunteers were assigned randomly to three 24-day feeding treatments: (a) 3-day, preplanned, fixed-menu cycle, all meals in the same sequence; (b) 6-day, preplanned, fixed-menu cycle, same foods as above plus an approximately equal number of new foods; and (c) 3-day cycle, same foods as (a) but, after first 3 days, men planned their own menus. The foods, mainly canned or dehydrated, were from military and commercial sources. Experimental items, including a high-protein beef drink, high-calorie, high-protein chocolate drink, and coffee drink, were also served. The over-all satisfaction with (b) and (c) was about equal and higher than with (a).
