Description The paper points out the importance of developing physical and nutrition literacy in children and forming their nutrition habits and physical activity patterns. The paper also comments on the latest findings and evaluates real possibilities schools have in forming physical activity patterns and nutrition habits in pupils. The paper mentions the outcome of experimental educational program Physical Activity and Nutrition which was run between 2013 and 2015 under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Czech Republic. Based on verified findings, the authors conclude that children’s physical and nutrition literacy is not formed only in schools but also via a range of educational stimuli, information sources and family life patterns. The authors emphasize that it is necessary to enhance the content of basic education with respect to physical activity and nutrition, especially within educational areas Humans and Health, and Humans and their World. In the conclusion the authors suggest measures leading to increased efficiency of children’s nutrition habits and physical activity patterns.
