Health Behaviours of Scottish Schoolchildren: Technical Report 3: Eating Patterns and Physical Activity in the 1990s

E-mail Print

Health education is a vitally important component in helping young people to develop into healthy adults. This Technical Report provides data about two key areas of health education – eating and exercise patterns. The report focuses entirely on Scottish school children and provides a unique source of information about how their eating and exercise behaviours have changed over the past decade.

Editor's comments - [  This report presents findings on changes in eating patterns, oral health, dieting, body image, physical activity and sedentary leisure activity among young people in Scotland during the 1990s. The data are drawn from three national Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) surveys of 11, 13 and 15 year olds conducted in 1990, 1994 and 1998. These surveys are part of the World Health Organization Cross-National HBSC study (Currie et al, 1998). Earlier reports from the Scottish HBSC study are referenced at the end of this report.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J. (Year). This page title in italics. Retrieved date, from <this page's full URL>
