Dietary intakes and food habits of adolescents in northern Greece



International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition 52(2): 109-116



The purpose of this study was to assess the dietary intakes and food habits of 582 adolescents in Northern Greece. Anthropometric data were collected for all the participating adolescents between September and December 1997. The prevalence of obesity as determined by both body mass index (BMI) and triceps skinfold thickness (TST) was higher for boys than for girls. Furthermore, boys had higher energy and macronutrient intakes compared to girls.
