Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly shown how important it is to take care of one's own and public health. In most cases, health problems have their origins in childhood, when lifestyle behaviors are formed. Unfortunately, for many years, unhealthy behaviors have been observed among school children, such as a decrease in the level of physical activity and an unhealthy diet. This results in an increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity among school-age children. This is accompanied by an increase in blood pressure, impaired carbohydrate metabolism, a decline in fitness and physical condition, and many other health problems. These, if not corrected in time, have a negative impact on health in adulthood. The major challenge is to enhance health and immunity also by diagnosnig health problems dependent on lifestyle in the school child population and implement effective actions to correct these errors and shape pro-health behavior. This is important for every individual, as well as for public health. It requires a great deal of work and presents an opportunity for interesting and necessary research for scientists in the fields of physical fitness, dietetics, education, medicine, public health, and others. We expect that many interesting works will be created in this respect, the results of which will be disseminated and published in this Special Issue. Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard coupled with a practical focus on providing pro-healthy lifestyle recommendations and solutions.
