Abstract

Objective: To understand and investigate the relationship between the snacks consumption of middle school students and physical health and weight obesity. Methods: Questionnaires were used to investigate whether students “understand the relationship between snacks consumption and their weight and health”. Results: Among the respondents, 70% consumed snacks, while only 30% did not consume snacks, so the snacks consumers far exceed 40% of those who do not consume snacks. The physical weight of senior school students consuming snacks was higher than that of those who did not eat snacks. Conclusion: Snacks consumption is certainly correlated with physical weight, and some additives in snacks can also cause obesity. As a result, active and effective measures should be taken to help senior school students quit their bad habit of eating snacks and maintain good health.
