In this study, eating behaviours and knowledge of food seasonality among college students who will become teachers were investigated. A questionnaire was administered to students to collect data on dietary habits, physical activity, and awareness of food season. Two-hundred eighty students participated (95.4% female, 26±6 years old); 14% was overweight/obese, but 68% never practiced physical activity. Almost 76% were aware of differences between consumption of fruit in and out of season, but a poor knowledge of foodstuffs seasonality emerged. These findings underline the need of improving awareness on proper diet and food seasonality because of the societal role of these students.
