The habits for consuming healthy and high-quality foods enable the preservation of health and
maintenance of the functionality and vitality of the organism. In order to get a clearer picture of the dietary habits of a
part of the population in the Republic of Macedonia, a survey was conducted. The survey was conducted by voluntary
electronic surveying of 215 people (44 men and 171 women) aged over 18, from different cities in the Republic of
Macedonia, who answered questions related to their daily diet. Based on the results obtained, it can be concluded that
most of the respondents have a habit of consuming fruits and vegetables every day. More than half of the respondents
consume fish once a week (58.48% of women and 52.27% of men). A small number of those surveyed consume products
such as canned food, ready-made dishes, pizzas (1.17% % women and 4.55% men), on a daily basis. Most of the
respondents eat sweets and salty snacks twice a week. The percentage of women and men who do not pay attention to the
intake of salt and sugar in their body is high. Most respondents consume food twice a day (women 51.46% and men
43.18%), while there is a small percentage of interviewees what eat in between meals. Regarding caloric intake, 47.37%
of women and 63.64% of men do not care about calorie intake, although most of the respondents reported that they are
familiar with the principles of proper nutrition. From the results obtained, it can be concluded that generally the
percentage of people who consume healthy, properly combined foods is low. Therefore, in order to improve the health of
the population in our country, the resolution of this big problem that affects the entire population must be encouraged.
Promoting the habits of healthy eating and physical activity should be continued in order for such habits to become rules
and norms for all people.
