The study sample consisted of 473 adolescents. Regression analyses were conducted to examine the effect of family climate, peer influence and self-regulation cognitions (goal commitment, efficacy and ownership) on healthy and unhealthy eating. Self-regulation cognitions are positively related to healthy eating and negatively to unhealthy eating. We conclude that different aspects of family climate and peer influence are significantly related to both healthy and unhealthy eating. Interventions should be directed at self-regulation cognitions as well as at family and peer influence.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9973||ISSN:||1359-1053||Rights:||© 2010 SAGE Publications Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC.||Type:||Article|
