This study aimed to investigate the impact of social background of students on two important aspects of behaviors related to health that are feeding and sport. The sample is gathered among gifted and ordinary students of Rasht city. There were 2 schools for gifted students that belong to boys and girls and also for ordinary students. After all, sample volume reached at 101 gifted and 118 ordinary students. For achieving more accurate and deeper data, 54 parents of first group and 74 of second were included. For making sure of maximum accuracy of findings, associative triangulation was used. The results show that gifted students are rooted in petit-bourgeois class and the subclass which owns high cultural capital. These people, in food, pay attention in Form, Presentation and healthiness and in sports look for being unique, and the effects which it has on the soul and body. In contrast, ordinary students who go to public schools have origins in worker class and follow the taste of necessity. For them, the most important features in foods are those who relate to energy and in sports, those who need high power and few requirements are in high priority.

Keywords: Social Space, Economic Capital, Cultural Capital, Food Taste, Sport Taste
