This research aims to develop Thai Healthy Recipes for adolescent by calculating recommended energy and nutrients intake for the late teens in each meal. Data collected from sold foods at standard laboratory of food service, analyzed their nutritive values by INMUCAL program and selected curry, soup, stir-fried menus which contain high sugar, sodium and fat whereas low fiber for healthy recipes development by reducing seasoning and changing some raw material. Nutritive values between pre and post recipes development were statistically compared by paired t-test. The results showed that sugar and fat content of pre foods less than the criteria therefore sodium and fiber content were only focused. After 20 menus development, amount of sugar was decrease while fiber was increase (p<0.05). The 10 healthy food sets from 20 developed menus comprised brown rice, 2 side dishes and fruits were sensory tested with 9-point hedonic scale in 50 undergraduate student. Overall acceptability of the set 7 which consisted of brown rice, stir-fried eggplant with minced pork, Chinese white radish soup with minced pork, and oranges was 7.59±0.97 (between like moderately and like very much) higher than the other (p<0.05). The study showed that developed healthy recipes (reduced sugar, fat, and sodium whereas increased fiber) were acceptable from undergraduate students which may be benefit to their nutritional status in the future.
