Abstract

This article focuses on the assessment of adolescents’ perceptions of the importance of food using the World Wide Web. Adolescents were found to be much aware of health‐related issues but in practice their eating habits were more likely to be influenced by the way they feel generally. Adolescent girls perceived their diets in the light of appearance and body shape, while boys were more concerned by fitness and general wellbeing. With age and maturity, adolescents give less importance to fitness and become more conscious about health issues.
