Obesity is a complex, multifactorial health problem that in recent decades has emerged as a major contributor to the morbidity of chronic diseases during childhood. The steep increase in the prevalence of chronic childhood diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), hypertension, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), is in accordance with the high rise in the obesity rates observed in all children populations, from toddlers to adolescents. Several lifestyle factors are being intensively researched since they are modifiable and could be easily used in preventive interventions; nutrition is among the most crucial of them. Either seen as micro- or macronutrient intake or as composite dietary patterns, the multiplex effect of the interrelated foods consumed by children—in innumerable types, sizes or frequencies—on the development or the exacerbation of several chronic diseases has not been thoroughly investigated. Thus, it is of great importance to create a Special Issue for the research of the nutrition and the obesity in childhood and adolescence.
Considering the success and popularity of the Special Issue "Advances in Research on Nutrition and Childhood Obesity" previously published in the journal Children (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/children/special_issues/Nutrition_Childhood_Obesity), we now release a second issue aiming to gather original research papers and review articles focused on children nutrition and obesity.
