ABSTRACT
In an answer to the survey, 40% of the surveyed girls and 82% of boys declared regular eating of three or four main meals a day. Only 31% of the young people drank milk or milk beverages regularly, and almost half of the surveyed youth ate raw vegetables and fruit every day. Similar percentage had fish as well as poultry in their menu 1–2 times a week and about one fourth of the surveyed group: 3–4 times a week. Snacking (mainly fruit, sandwiches, crisps) between main meals was declared by 85% of the surveyed. As many as 97% of the surveyed young people ate fast food, but at the same time 100% of the surveyed girls and 95% of the boys expressed an opinion that this is not “healthy” food. Most preferred products were: pizza – 76% of the surveyed young people, open cheese and mushroom toasted sandwich with ketchup – 54%, Big Mac – 43%. A convenient form of consumption, attractiveness, taste and accessible price were regarded by most of the surveyed as great advantages of these products.
