Abstract: The study analysed the association between physical condition and eating habits in physical education students from a Peruvian public university. The information was collected through the survey technique and physical tests in a sample that consisted of a total of 337 students, 60.2% from the morning shift and 39.8% from the night shift. The data was processed using SPSS v. 24. The results indicated a positive and significant correlation between physical tests and healthy eating habits (p < .05); in the same way, a higher frequency of consumption was obtained in snacks, fried foods, etc. (p < .05) in the night shift students, unlike the morning shift students who more frequently consume fruits, vegetables, homemade food, among others (p < .05). Regarding physical condition, there was an indirect and significant correlation with eating habits (p < .05). It is concluded that the management carried out to improve physical tests in students will be reflected in better eating habits; likewise, it is recommended to provide the corresponding importance in terms of the study variables.
