Associations of sedentary behaviors and incidence of unhealthy diet during the COVID-19 quarantine in Brazil/Public Health Nutrition

Goal

Analyze the association of change patterns on TV-viewing and computer/tablet use and incidence of elevated consumption of ultra- rocessed food consumption and lower consumption of fruits and vegetables during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Results

High TV-viewing and computer/ tablet use incidence were associated with higher odds for elevated frequency of ultra-processed food consumption (TV-viewing: OR 1·70; 95 % CI 1·37, 2·12; computer/tablet: OR 1·73; 95 % CI 1·31, 2·27) and low consumption of fruit and vegetables (TV-viewing: OR 1·70; 95 % CI 1·29, 2·23; computer/tablet: OR 1·53; 95 % CI 1·08, 2·17) incidence. Consistent high computer/tablet use also presented higher odds for incidence of elevated frequency of ultra-processed food consumption.
