Dietary data and related factors to children living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Viewed: 7

This dataset was used to examine dietary patterns and child, parental and societal factors associated with overweight and obesity among children aged 9-11 years old in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The data was collected from 221 fifth grade children from four primary schools across four regions in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from July 2020 and Sept-Oct 2020. The information about factors associated with childhood overweight and obesity was self-administrated by parents at home. A sub-sample of 124 children with dietary data from 3 non-consecutive 24-hour recalls were used to explored dietary patterns using Principal Component Analysis. Detail of data collection and methodology of this dataset could be found in the associated publication in the journal, Maternal and Child Nutrition.
