Thus, the objective of the study was to analyze the effectiveness of health education interventions on the topics of healthy eating, physical activity and posture education in raising awareness of a healthier lifestyle in adolescents enrolled in two public schools in Criciuma, Santa Catarina. A prospective and analytical study was conducted in two state public schools, divided in two groups: Elementary School and High School. The sample consisted of 109 adolescents of both genders, aged 11 to 17 years. Questionnaires (pre and post action) were applied . Data was exported to SPSS version 20.0.
