Abstract: Deterioration of health in Russia starts from the earliest school ages and continues up to the end of school [1, 2]. Only less than 10% of children remain that are considered absolutely healthy. The share of chronic diseases of the nervous system among schoolchildren increased by 4.5 times, the share of diseases of the digestive system-from 10.8% to 20.3%, the frequency of mental disorders and behavioral disorders among children aged 15-17 years - by 13.7% . The problem is also relevant for other countries. More than 10% of adolescents in the European region suffer from some kind of mental health disorder, and one in three children aged 6-9 years is either overweight or obese . The reasons for unhealthy food habits in the modern societies of developed cities in Russia, Japan and other European countries, may be due to an increase in school loads, low physical activity, recreations with late time sleeping and eating in the night [1-6]. During the period of self-isolation, the problems only worsened. This study aims to examine the regional differences in the chronobiological aspects of behavioral factors of school adolescents, in the Russian Federation.
