Abstract : A questionnaire survey among enlisted men at Camp Fistclench, Greenland, in 1960 confirmed results of a similar study on foods in 1959. Attitudes toward most aspects of the feeding situation were very favorable, although specific foods were not rated high. The presence of psychological stress was not demonstrated. The hypothesis that food has a generalized 'comfort' function was neither rejected nor confirmed. (Author)
