- Healthy eating behavior, peer conformity, an adolescent
Healthy eating behavior is a habit of consuming daily food-related to an individual’s aim to implement healthy living. The occurrence of healthy eating behavior can be influenced by peer conformity. Accordingly, this study aims to assess the relationship between peer conformity and healthy eating behavior in MAN 2 Model Makassar adolescents. The participants in this study were 196 students in MAN 2 Model Makassar. Data collection was carried out using two scales, namely the scale of healthy eating behavior and the scale of peer conformity. The analysis results using Spearman’s rho showed that the correlation coefficient of this study’s variables is - 0.353 (P = 0.000). The correlation coefficient value shows that peer conformity and healthy eating behavior in adolescents has a negative relationship. The result shows the students with higher conformity of peers, the lower the adolescents’ healthy eating behavior.
