The aim of this study was to develop an instrument to evaluate the knowledge of preschool children about healthy lifestyle behavior. The innovation was that the instrument was designed to get direct evidence about healthy lifestyle from children aged 4-6 years old. Usually, children knowledge is estimated indirectly (parents, teachers), but the current study aspired to provide direct evidence by developing a valid and reliable instrument. To this respect, the initial psychometric properties were encouraging, supporting the appropriateness of the questionnaire. However, further research is needed in order to draw firm conclusions about the reliability and psychometric properties of the instrument. (Contains 1 table.)
