Abstract
Pravilna prehrana i redovita tjelesna aktivnost bitan su čimbenik cjelokupnog razvoja i predstavljaju važan preduvjet održavanja zdravlja pojedinca. Nepravilna prehrana i stilovi života uzrok su trenda povećanja broja pretile djece što postaje sve veći javnozdravstveni problem. Cilj ovog rada bio je ispitati stanje uhranjenosti, te prehrambene i životne navike, kao i njihovu povezanost na 752 srednjoškolca sa područja Srednjobosanskog kantona. Dobiveni rezultati pokazuju da postoje odstupanja u kategorizaciji ispitanika u statusu uhranjenosti iskazanom prema ITM u odnosu na percentilne krivulje. Samopercepcija o prisutnosti povećane tjelesne mase zabilježena je kod ukupno 15,4 % adolescenata, pri čemu je neopravdanost osobnog stava srednjoškolaca o statusu vlastite uhranjenosti izraženija kod djevojaka. Od ukupnog broja ispitanika najveći je udjel onih koji konzumiraju tri glavna obroka (66,5 %) i onih koji ne konzumiraju redovito doručak, čak njih 41,2 %. Od ukupnog broja ispitanika, tjelesnom aktivnošću se bavi 71,1 %. Dobiveni rezultati predstavljaju polaznu točku za izradu prehrambene i zdravstvene politike, kao i programa intervencije u svrhu unapređenja i poboljšanja prehrambenih i životnih navika, kojima je glavni cilj očuvanje zdravlja na čitavoj razini populacije, kako na lokalnoj, tako i na nacionalnoj razini.

Parallel abstract (English)
Both proper nutrition and constant physical activity are essential factors for the overall development of each individual, and are important prerequisites for maintaining good health. An unhealthy diet and lifestyles are leading to a trend that includes the increase of obese children and it is becoming a growing public health issue. The main purpose of this paper is to examine the nutritional scales, dietary and lifestyle habits, as well as their connection, applied on 752 high-school students from the Middle Bosnia Canton. Results show that there are differences in the categorization of respondents when observing the nutritional status based on BMI in relation to the percentile curves. Awareness of the presence of increased body mass was expressed by 15.4% adolescents, with the unjustified personal perception of high-school students on the topic of self-nutrition more expressed by girls. Out of the total number of respondents, the largest proportion is of those who consume three main meals (66.5%) and the ones who do not eat breakfast, 41.2% of them. Out of all the respondents, 71.14% are engaged in some type of physical activity. The results represent a starting point for the development of a nutritional and health policy, as well as intervention programs for the purpose of promoting and improving nutritional and lifestyle habits, which have the main goal of preserving health of the whole population, both on the local and national level.
