Special Issue "Snacking Behaviors and Weight Status"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 August 2019).
Snacking behaviors have increased over the past several decades, contributing to increases in the contribution of energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods and beverages. Furthermore, studies and reviews have suggested there is a link between snacking behaviors and weight status, yet some gaps in understanding remain. For example, there is a need to use a consistent definition for snacking occasions, a need to better understand the contextual and environmental factors that influence snacking in very young children, and a need for more longitudinal studies with racially/ethnically socioeconomically diverse populations. This Special Issue entitled “Snacking Behaviors and Weight Status” aims to bring together the latest research on snacking behaviors from infancy, childhood through adolescence and adulthood and how they may be associated with obesity.
