Effects of past memories of taking meals on attitudes towards having breakfast were investigated. University students (N = 230, 86 men and 144 women) completed questionnaires assessing past memories of taking meals, centrifugal-centripetal family systems in memories of taking meals, and attitudes towards breakfast consumption. Results of multiple regression analysis based on gender suggested the following. "Concerns about preparing meals" in both men and women affected the attitude that taking breakfast is important. Moreover, men that believed preparing their own breakfast was under their control were affected by "mutual communication at the dinner table", whereas women that believed the same were affected by "discipline of manners." Finally, the possibility that experiences of "Shokuiku" effected attitudes towards breakfast consumption through social support is discussed.
