ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to evaluate nutritional predilections for various alcohol-free and alcoholic drinks among the youth from secondary schools in Konin. The studies were carried out using the questionnaire method. The preference degree of the evaluated drinks depended on the sex of the respondents. Both girls and boys pointed out fruit juices as the most preferred alcohol-free drinks, while as the least preferred the drink called "Dynamic" was indicated among girls, and natural coffee – among boys. Relatively high similarity of drink consumption was found between boys and girls. Tea, fruit drinks and fruit juices scored the highest ranks in the consumption frequency series, while the lowest ranks were observed for energetic drinks, and – among boys – also for natural coffee. Not all of the most preferred drinks belonged to the most frequently consumed ones. Alcoholic drinks were consumed rarely by the respondents, while beer was the most preferred and most often consumed drink of this type, independently from sex. The results obtained show that the selection of drinks consumed by youth corresponded in general to the rational nutrition recommendations.
