|Resumo: ||It is well known the influence that parents and peers
have in children and adolescent choices and behaviors, including eating
habits and physical activity practice. No work has been done yet
about parents and peers influence in nutrition knowledge.
This work aims to study the relation between adolescents’ perception
of parents and peers food habits, physical activity practice, stimulus
to the adolescent to follow a healthy diet and be physically active
and adolescents Nutritional Knowledge.
Methods: A translated and validated version of the Nutritional
Knowledge Questionnaire (Parmenter and Wardle, 1999) was used
with another questionnaire about adolescents’ perception of parents
and peers behavior and stimulus. Results: Data from a 653 male and female sample, mean age
15.9 years (SD = 2.10) show that Nutrition Knowledge is related to
the perception adolescents have of their fathers’ physical activity
level (P < 0.05), and of their mothers (P < 0.05) and peers
(P < 0.01) healthy eating habits.
No statistical significance was found to the relation between nutrition
knowledge and all other adolescent perceptions.
Conclusions: These results suggest that beside there is a relation of
Nutrition Knowledge and parents and peers perceived habits, the
major role must be in schools. Showing that school based and adolescent
focused interventions must be planned to improve nutrition knowledge.|
