The aim of this study is to investigate the eating habits of handball players fighting in high-level leagues and
national teams and to examine their differences in terms of some variables. There were 39 handball players who
actively played Handball in 2nd, 1st, Super League and National teams. The nutrition information scale, developed
by Zinn, Schofield and Wall, is composed of 23 questions for the determination of eating habits. The athletes were
interviewed by telephone and face-to-face interviews. SPSS 22 program was used in statistical calculations. The
frequency and percentage values of the obtained data were calculated and the T test and the Mann-Whitney U test
were applied to investigate the differences between the genders, the knowledge of nutrients, the knowledge of
liquid substances, the level of recovery information, the weight control knowledge level and the general nutritional
knowledge level. When the P value was less than 0.05, the difference between the groups was considered
significant. In order to examine the effect of income on knowledge level of nutrients, level of knowledge of liquids,
level of knowledge of restitution, level of knowledge of weight control and level of general nutrition knowledge,
the one-way ANOVA and Kruskal-Wallis Tests were applied and the P value was lower than 0,05, it is considered
to be a significant difference. As a result, in the light of nutritional information supported by scientific studies, it
is thought that it will be very beneficial for the athletes to be supported by nutrition education.
