Abstract

Environmental factors and, in particular, diet, could represent potentially modifiable risk factors for the treatment of childhood obesity. The association between red meat consumption and obesity is demonstrated in adulthood. On the other hand, the association between red meat consumption and obesity is not as clear in children and adolescents. The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that children and adolescents with obesity are consuming higher quantities of red meat, while still taking into account the appropriate consumption and the overall benefits of red meat itself.
