Abstract

Background: As the prevalence of childhood obesity and obesity-related diseases increase globally, the need to better understand those factors that promote obesity becomes more critical. The contribution of ultra-processed food (UPF) to daily energy intake, which is increasing worldwide, has been recommended as an indicator of diet quality and obesity and obesity-related diseases risk. UPFs are defined as formulations made by the food industry with little if any whole food and high amounts of fats, salt and sugars as well as other sources energy and nutrients of very low cost, and additives. Objectives: To study the UPF consumption patterns of US children and adolescents and to determine their association with dietary profile and obesity indicators. Design and participants: This study will use the NUPENS's ongoing thematic project infrastructure and high level of support from the team leadership. Cross-sectional analysis of the dietary intake and anthropometric data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted between 2007 and 2012. Children aged 6 months to 18 years with 24 hour dietary recall and anthropometrics data available will be included. Statistical analysis: Linear and logistic regression models will be used to examine the association of contribution of UPF with dietary profile and obesity indicators, controlling for socio-demographic characteristics, and physical activity.
