Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

  1. Amount of salt intake should also be taken into consideration.
  2. Table 2 should be re-designed/structured. Frequency of home cooking in the left upper column is not correct. For example, blood pressure and Cholesterol levels are not part of Frequency of home cooking, but they are under Frequency of home cooking column.
  3. Abbreviations should be provided as footnotes for all tables.
  4. Any data on education levels of parents in household
  5. Any data on smoking status in parents 
  6. Major limitation is cross-sectional design limiting assessment of causal relationship
  7. About minor points, there are grammars and typos errors in the text. Please thoroughly check the article
