Abstract

In this study, it was aimed to investigate the relationship between eating habits and physical activity and to reveal differences in adolescents. A total of 200 children between 13-17 ages were included to the study. As data collection tools, 18-question survey prepared based on expert opinion andGodin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire survey were administered to students. Multidimensional Scaling Analysis technique was used to investigate the relationship between physical activity and eating habits and t-test and Chi-square analysis were used to compare the genders in terms of physical activities. The values of doing breakfast of the students in terms of eating habits were found high. Lunch was observed as the most frequently skipped meal and it was detected that the reason of it was arisen from reluctance and shortage of time. Any statistically significant differences were not found between the girls and boys in terms of the low-intensity exercises. It was observed that the sports done by considering 7 days a week showed significant differences in favor of males according to genders [p=0,001]. As a result, besides adequate and balanced diet to achieve the desired quality in basic education, giving importance to physical activity can significantly improve physical fitness features.
