Food changes in the NutriNet Brasil cohort during the Covid-19 pandemic
Describe the dietary characteristics of participants in the NutriNet Brasil cohort immediately before and during the covid-19 pandemic.
For all participants, we found a modest but statistically significant increase in the consumption of healthy eating markers and stability in the consumption of unhealthy food markers. This favorable pattern of dietary changes during the pandemic occurred in most sociodemographic strata. We observed a less favorable changing pattern, with a tendency to increasing consumption of healthy and unhealthy food markers, in the Northeast and North macro-regions and among people with less schooling, suggesting social inequalities in the response to the pandemic.
