The dynamics of growth and development and the peculiarities of the biological structure of the child's organism place its diet at a central place. Target: A healthy and balanced diet means the use of biologically valuable food products that can meet energy needs and provide a qualitative and quantitative input of important nutrients, ensuring harmonious growth and development of children and protection against diseases. Materials and methods: epidemiological descriptive method, and a survey conducted on 200 students in elementary schools and state student dormitory in Stip. Results and discussion: obesity, reduced vision and deformities of the spine and flat feet are the most common deformities and problems that arise from poor fast diet, insufficient physical activity and poor posture.
