Abstract Preference degree of selected by 132 pre-school children food products was examined in the study. Preferential series were established for both: the total of the examined, and separately for young girls and boys. Degree was defined by children with usage of 4-point mimic scale and large-scale illustrations with colourful prints representing studied food products. Fast-food type products, sweets, fruits, vegetables, as well as meat and meat products were the mostly preferred groups of food products. High preference degree of meat dishes and particularly poultry, fish, as well as lean sausages was noticed. Among drinks, children drank the most preferably fizzy drinks, especially coca-cola, as well as lemon tea, and milk. Statistically significant influence of sex on preferences of some analysed food products was found. Girls preferred mostly apples, fish, potatoes and fruit juices while homogenized cheese, pears and berries were more often chosen by boys.
