Summary

This study aimed to investigate the relationship of peer bullying (PB) with dietary habits and anger management styles in students studying at the high schools. A total of 210 students (15.95±0.702 years) were included in the study attending high schools with different features (School for Girls, Religious School, Anatolian School and School for Boys). Their demographic data and dietary habits were collected with a questionnaire along with the Peer Bullying Scale and the Permanent Anger Expression Style Scale. There was a significant positive correlation between total anger scores and total PB scores. Total and subscale scores of PB and anger of boys were higher than those of girls. Total bullying and anger scores of students consuming red meat and soft drinks every day were significantly higher than those who never or rarely eat. Gender, education type and dietary habits have influence on PB and anger scores of high school students.
