Chinese development is accelerating. It is also having an impact globally. But in the face of globalization, Chinese cuisine is also changing. Chinese food is considered to be the best food model. But in recent times, Chinese food is believed to have fused with other countries’ food. Along with the impact of westernization.
Chinese food style has also been greatly influenced. Lately, there has been a difference in eating habits, eating alone and eating together. The amount of nutrients in food should be sufficient for people to live and be healthy. People need nutrients based on their age, gender and physical activity. It is also affected by special weather conditions. The habit of paying attention to food intake also benefits people’s biological characteristics. Why do Japanese live so long?
The answer to that question is given by their lifestyle. Food itself affects various aspects of life, economic, political, cultural and many other factors and these factors also affect the eating style. A study by the Journal of Ethics Food on Chinese eating habits and behaviors has revealed their eating habits, food distribution methods, etc. People need different types of nutrition. These nutrients are made from grains. Behavior related to food choice and consumption directly affects nutrient intake, while these behaviors are influenced by social, economic and cultural factors.
Therefore, the belief that the field of human nutrition research should not be limited to biological sciences is the purpose of the article published in the journal.
How to Serve Chinese Food
Food is always placed in the middle of the table, so that people can share. As in the Nepali tradition, after one person has eaten, the food is placed in the middle of the table and distributed to all at once. According to Chinese tradition, the elderly are fed first and then the other members. In some parts of China, it is customary for families to eat together. In many places women eat slower than men.
Looking at the culture of serving food, there is a complete difference between Western and Chinese culture. While solitary food is a Western culture, Chinese food culture uses a group meal system wherever possible. The collective food system is the most widely adopted food system during conflicts. Apart from the problem of spread of infectious diseases, it is considered to be the best food in the world.
Amount of Chinese Food
About 94 percent of Chinese eat three meals a day. 5 percent eat twice a day. However, this situation is different in urban and rural areas. Poor rural dwellers eat twice a day. The crops of the people in the northern rural areas vary according to the seasons. Based on the production of the same crop, it has been decided to feed the rural Chinese two or three times a day. China’s National Nutrition Survey indicates that eating habits vary among people of different ethnic groups.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
The Chinese people usually have breakfast from 6 am to 8 am. Some people even eat at the same time on the weekends. Only a limited number of people eat breakfast at home or in a restaurant. Many eat such food in the workplace. Surveys in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou show that some people skip breakfast. People under the age of 35 ate more than the proportion of breakfast each day.
According to the study, those who eat breakfast eat fruits, vegetables, milk, chicken legs, etc. People in northern China eat bread, porridge, and noodles. Most breakfasts do not include vegetables and fruits. Lunch is usually eaten between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. In China, people from small urban and rural areas go home for lunch. People in large urban areas eat at canteens, restaurants, or fast food outlets. Now the influence of the West has boosted the fast food business in China as well.
In the evening, they eat between 7 pm and 7:30 pm. In urban areas, it is often customary to sit together and eat at family gatherings.
