This study investigated dietary education and education satisfaction from the perspectives of academic ability improvement, psychological-emotional development, and self-respect. For this reason, empirical analysis was performed on the relationship between dietary education activity, education satisfaction, and self-respect. The purpose of this study is to appreciate the importance of dietary education, to focus the attention of researchers on dietary education and to provide fundamental materials. The results drawn from analysis are as follows. Firstly, it was discovered that the degree of dietary education has positive relationships with both academic ability improvement, and psychological/emotional development. Secondly, self-respect has positive relationships with academic ability improvement, and psychological/emotional development in terms of education satisfaction. Thirdly, after analyzing the influences of dietary education activity on self-respect, it was indicated that self-respect has a positive relationship with dietary education activity. Therefore, continuous and consistent dietary education needs to be performed at home, as well as at school, at the national level to establish appropriate dietary knowledge to teenagers, rather than simply delivering knowledge. It is also suggested that the education that can form self-respect be required.
