HERNANDEZ HERNANDEZ, Diego et al. Eating habits and their impact on the academic performance of students of the Pharmacy Degree. JONNPR [online]. 2020, vol.5, n.3, pp.295-306.  Epub Sep 28, 2020. ISSN 2529-850X.


According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), human food is defined as a consistent and educatable voluntary process.


To identify the impact of eating habits on the academic performance of students of the ICSa Pharmacy degree.


A cross-sectional, observational and prospective study was carried out. The MAPFRE Foundation's Healthy Eating survey was adapted and the sampling was non-probabilistic.


We applied 102 surveys, predominated the female sex, with an average age of 20 (± 1) years. About 50%, he mentioned bringing food from his home and having the habit of having breakfast, however, less than half of the sample consumes at least one fruit and/or vegetable a day. A 76% believe their food if it impacts their academic performance.


It is important to make students aware of the correct way to eat and the impact on their academic performance, as well as to promote healthy lifestyles and provide them with necessary and correct information to properly select their food and drinks, otherwise that food selection will not be positive, that is, negative.
