The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly shown how important it is to take care of one's own and public health. In most cases, health problems have their origins in childhood, when lifestyle behaviours are formed. Globally, the prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing among children and is associated with unhealthy dietary habits and lack of physical activity.
Improper diet combined with low physical activity is responsible for the increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity among school-age children. Obesity is one of the main risk factors responsible for multi-aetiological pathologies. The major challenge is to enhance health and immunity also by diagnosing health problems dependent on lifestyle in the school child population and implementing effective actions to correct these errors and shape pro-health behaviour.
We invites authors who have carried out interesting research on the above topics to submit the results of their work to be disseminated and published in this Special Issue. Particularly welcome are papers combining a high academic standard coupled with a practical focus on providing pro-healthy lifestyle recommendations and solutions.
We look forward to reports related to:
- Assessment of the nutritional behaviour of school children;
- The influence of nutrition and regular physical activity on children's health;
- Shaping pro-health behaviour of school children;
- The influence of environmental factors on eating behaviour;
- The role of nutritional education in the population of children and adolescents;
- Analysis of nutritional errors that pose a risk to maintaining health;
- Prevention of overweight and obesity among children and adolescents;
- Analysis of the eating behaviour and blood pressure of children and adolescents;
- Activities for health education.
