Abstract
Pravilna prehrana i redovita tjelesna aktivnost vodeći su čimbenici u promicanju i održavanju dobrog zdravlja kroz cijeli život. Pravilna prehrana zaslužna je za djetetov emocionalni, mentalni i socijalni razvoj te je posebno važna tijekom adolescencije kako bi dijete ostvarilo potpuni potencijal.Istraživanje o stanju uhranjenosti i prehrambenim navikama školske djece (starosne dobi od 11 do 14 godina) provedeno je u svibnju i lipnju 2013. godine u urbanoj i ruralnoj sredini. U istraživanju je sudjelovao 651 učenik. Stavovi, prehrambene navike i razlike između učenika iz urbane i ruralne sredine dobiveni su upitnikom Zdrav način življenja prehrana. Rezultati istraživanja pokazali su kako većina učenika ima normalnu tjelesnu masu (73,73%). Nepravilnosti u uhranjenosti češće su primijećene kod dječaka. Prehrambene navike učenika uglavnom su karakteristične za sredinu u kojoj žive, s tim da učenici iz ruralne sredine redovitije doručkuju, a učenici iz urbane sredine češće jedu voće i cjelovite žitarice. Porastom dobi, učenici imaju nepravilnije prehrambene navike (neredovit doručak, smanjena konzumacija voća i povrća, češća konzumacija slatkiša i grickalica, brze hrane i gaziranih sokova). Briga i opterećenost tjelesnim izgledom više je izražena kod djevojčica. Negativne navike učenika uglavnom se pojavljuju u višim razredima. Tjelesna aktivnost učenika smanjuje se porastom dobi ispitanika, a povećava se broj sati provedenih za računalom i pred televizorom.

Parallel abstract (English)
Balanced diet and physical activity are the leading factors in the promotion and keeping good health throughout our entire lives. It is responsible for the child's emotional, mental and social development,and it is highly important during the adolescence for the child to reach its full potential. The research about the nutritional status and dietary habits of school pupils (aged 11 to 14 years) was carried out in May/June of 2013 in urban and rural environments. The total of 651 pupils have participated in the research. The data about their attitudes, dietary habits and the differences between the pupils from the urban or rural environments have been obtained by the questionnaire Healthy way of life the diet.The research findings showed that the majority of pupils have normal body weight (73,73%). The irregularities in the nutritional status are more often observed with the boys. The pupils' dietary habits correspond to the environment they live in, having in mind that the pupils from the rural environment have breakfast more often, while the pupils from the urban environment eat fruit and whole grains more often. With the increase in age, the pupils' dietary habits become more irregular (irregular breakfast eating, decreased intake of fruits and vegetables, increased intake of sweets, snack food, fast food and soft drinks). The concern about physical appearance is higher among the girls. Pupils' bad habits usually appear in the higher school years. The physical activity of the pupils is decreasing as their age increases, while the number of hours spent on the computer and in front of the TV increase.
