Sažetak

This paper focuses on the relationship between parents and schools in encouraging healthy eating behaviour for adolescents as it is thought to have an important role in creating adolescents` healthy eating habits. The purpose of the paper is to identify the differences between the perception of parents and teachers regarding healthy eating in schools, as well as the existence of their partnerships. The study used a quantitative approach and a survey of teachers and parents. However, this approach resulted in a major limitation of this paper because the study was based on research conducted among conveniently selected schools and teachers only. Moreover, it is focused on early adolescents (10-13 years old). The results of the study showed that there were no significant differences among the attitudes and opinions of parents and teachers and that a proactive and positive approach is needed for accepting healthy nutrition. Accordingly, the findings from this study have important implications for the development of educational programmes with the specific focus on building a stronger relationship between schools and parents with the ultimate goal of being able to improve communication about adolescents` nutrition.
