Abstract
Background and objectives: In adolescents, adequate nutrition education is essential for making decisions regarding healthy eating habits. We aimed to investigate differences in dietary habits and body image misperception according to nutrition education status.

Methods and study design: We analyzed 60,389 adolescents aged 12-18 years old, using the 2017 Korea Youth Risk Behavior Web-based Survey data. Participants were divided into nutrition-educated (EDU) and uneducated (non-EDU) groups, according to nutrition education status within the past year. Skipping breakfast was defined as skipping breakfast ≥5 times/week. Desirable dietary behaviors were divided into the frequency of consumption of 3 items: vegetables ≥1 time/day, milk ≥1 time/day, and fruits ≥1 time/day. Participants with normal weight who reported being slightly fat or very fat were defined as having body image misperception.

Results: Compared to the non-EDU group, the odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for desirable dietary behaviors in the EDU group were 1.08 (1.04-1.13), 1.14 (1.09-1.19), and 1.16 (1.12-1.20) for the intake of fruits, milk, and vegetables, respectively. The EDU group was less associated with skipping breakfast than the non-EDU group (OR=0.91, 95% CI: 0.87-0.95, p<0.001). The OR and 95% CI of body image misperception in the EDU group were lower than in the non-EDU group (OR=0.92, 95% CI: 0.87- 0.97, p<0.001).

Conclusions: Nutrition education have positive effects on healthy dietary behaviors. It also shows a negative association with body image misperception, confirming the importance of nutrition education at school.
