Abstract
Fast food is considered as the type of food that can be served ready to eat fast. Fast food and junk food often is used interchangeably. Energy dense food with high sugar/fat/salt content and low nutrient value in terms of protein, fiber, vitamin and mineral is known as junk food. Taking of such food among children is not less. Approximately 56% students of a private university in Dhaka go to fast food restaurants at least once per week and 44% goes regularly (≥2 times/week). Sponsorship of sports or other competitions with attractive gifts is important for first food sale. There are many contributing factors of such food consumption. Fast food is associated to many health hazards. Easy availability of healthy food with affordable prices along with its campaign, school midday-food programme and health education may improve dietary habit of children. Food related laws implementation along with regulation of fast food marketing may be important steps in controlling such food consumption among children.
