      Objective: to evaluate the quality of life and its relationship with the nutritional status and weight satisfaction. Method: cross-sectional observational study which quantitative approach, performed with 407 schoolchildren between 8 and 12 years-old registered in public schools in Vitória (ES), Brazil. Quality of life data was obtained through the application of Autoquestionnaire Qualité de Vie Enfant Imagé. The nutritional status was settled by Body Mass Index and the weight satisfaction was obtained with a closed question. The research project was approved by the Ethics Committee of the Center for Health Sciences, Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, Brazil (n° 032/08). Results: in the sample studied, 79,4% (n=323) have evaluated positively their quality of life. The 72,7% (n=296) was categorized as eutrophics, 6,1% (n=25) had low weight, 11,3% (n=46) overweight and 9,3% (n=38) obesity. Regarding weight satisfaction, 78,6% (n=320) said that they were satisfied. The results didn’t show evidence between quality of life and nutritional status among the students.
