The changes in dietary habits and way of life of adolescents lead to some nutrition problems. Th e purpose of this study is to compare dietary habits of children living in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas regarding their physical characteristics, socio-economic milieu and educational level. fast food is any easy solution to meal times. Fast food advertisements are oft en aimed directly at children, making them desire fast food even more. Obesity during adolescence has been found to increase mortality rates during adulthood.For many people, especially those in their early teens, body image can be closely linked to self-esteem. Th at�s because as kids develop into teens, they care more about how others see them. Th e obesity risk of adolescents is to be high. Some literature has found a relationship between fast food consumption and obesity. Including a study which found that fast food restaurants near schools increases the risk of obesity among the student population. Exposure to poor-quality food environments has important eff ects on adolescent eating patterns and overweight. Policy interventions limiting the proximity of fast-food restaurants to schools could help reduce adolescent obesity. Intervention programs should be organized in order to inform the students about the importance of healthy nutrition and lead them to change their current consumption behavior.
