Aim. The paper reports the analysis of using electronic cigarettes among 10–11-years old children. Material and Methods. The data collecting took place between October 2015 and October 2017. There were 471 (245 boys and 226 girls) 10–11 years old primary schools students from Northern Poland. They were asked to answer 7 questions. Results. The vast majority of children are aware of the dangers of smoking (83.23%). The total number of students with parents or siblings smoking traditional cigarettes is 158 (33.55%) and e‑cigarettes is 64 (13.59%). Among the children responding to our questionnaire traditional cigarettes have been smoked by 16 (3.40%) of them and e‑cigarettes have been used by 13 (2.76%) of them. Both types of cigarettes have been smoked by 7 (1.49%) children. Among the children who have never had the contact with nicotine the willingness to future smoke traditional and e‑cigarettes in the future declared respectively (7.25% and 4.37%). Among the children who had one time and over one time contact with nicotine the willingness to future smoke traditional cigarettes and use e‑cigarettes declared respectively of them (0.42%) and 4 of them (0.85%). Conclusions. The vast majority of children participating in the survey are aware of the dangers of smoking. Electronic cigarettes are a new trend among the nicotine‑containing products. Children who have already smoked e‑cigarettes more often declare their willingness to use them in the future.

Key words: electronic nicotine delivery devices, smoking intention, prevention.
