The article presents the results of a survey of older adolescents among students. The structure of nutrition of adolescents is analyzed. It was found that the majority of students’ nutrition is not balanced, carbohydrate-containing foods predominate. There is a lack of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. The diet of students is not observed. It is noted that at this age, many respondents have chronic diseases. It was found that most adolescents have an idea of functional nutrition products, but the frequency of consumption of such products among this category of the population often depends on the cost. As fortified foods, adolescents would prefer soft drinks, confectionery and bakery products, dairy products and fortified “fast food”. Measures to improve the health of adolescents are proposed.
