Children's and Adolescents' Rising Animal-Source Food Intakes in 1990-2018 Were Impacted by Age, Region, Parental, Education and Urbanicity


Animal-source foods (ASF) provide nutrition for children and adolescents' physical and cognitive development. Here, we use data from the Global Dietary Database and Bayesian hierarchical models to quantify global, regional and national ASF intakes between 1990 and 2018 by age group across 185 countries, representing 93% of the world's child population. Mean ASF intake was 1.9 servings per day, representing 16% of children consuming at least three daily servings.
