Healthy eating is essential for children at all stages of their development, including during the school-age period, promoting growth and health promotion. However, as well as other underdeveloped countries, Brazil underwent a change in the quality and quantity of food and lifestyle, which affected the health of Brazilians in a harmful way. In addition, it is important to know that eating habits learned during childhood influence eating behavior in adulthood. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the food preferences of school-age children for effective interference in order to improve the quality of infant feeding.The objective of this study was to analyze the eating habits and the physical exercise practice of students from the municipal school Casa dos Ferrovi?rios in Recife - Pernambuco. The research was carried out with authorization from the WICF. The representative sample comprised 43 children with an average age of 10 years. For the study, structured questionnaires were elaborated in the classroom, elaborated with ten closed questions about eating habits. Subsequently, the answers were evaluated according to a score previously established for each question. After the evaluation of the data, it was verified that: 6.98% of the children had insufficient diet, 86.04% of the students had a good diet, but still not ideal and 6.98% presented adequate diet. Therefore, in the evaluation of the data, the need to promote food re-education was introduced, introducing nutrient-rich and varied food options in order to improve child health and quality of life.
