Abstract

The rapid increase over the past three decades in the prevalence of childhood obesity in urban areas across India has led to increased concern about the diets of adolescents and children. Snacking is likely to play an important role in the development of overweight and obesity, yet little is known about the contexts of snacking in adolescents.
