Objectives: The present study was designed to assess physical activity, sedentary behaviors and dietary habits among adolescents in Morocco and to define the correlates of physical inactivity (PI). Summary of facts and results: This school-based cross-sectional study of 346 secondary-school boys (160) and girls (186), aged 14–19 years, demonstrated an overall prevalence of PI of 58.8 (50.0 for boys and 66.6 for girls). Almost one third of adolescents spent more than 2 h/d on screen time. The majority of adolescents did not daily consume fruit and vegetables, while a considerable proportion frequently showed unhealthy dietary habits. Computer use, less fruit and fast foods consumption and increase in consuming milk/dairy products and doughnuts/cakes remained associated with higher odds of PI. Conclusion: These results show important associations between modifiable environmental factors with PI. The promotion of healthy lifestyles including active living should be a national public health priority. © 2017 Elsevier Masson SAS
