Objectives: We reviewed the current status of healthy eating behaviors in South Korea and analyzed the influencing factors. Methods: A single-equation robust estimator and a seemingly unrelated regression were completed for the effects of access to food retailers, single households, and patients living in the household on healthy eating. Data were retrieved from a consumer survey of 3043 household members preparing food. Results: Better access to retailers is positively related to healthy eating status. Single households are least likely to practice healthy eating and the presence of a patient in the household is negatively related to healthy eating status. Conclusions: The 3 factors have significant effects on South Koreans' healthy eating status.
