Abstract

Introduction: Nutrition and diets play an important role in the health of children and adolescents, different results have been obtained concerning the effects of diets on sleeping hours and on their relationship with blood lipid composition, and some studies have emphasized more studies should be carried out in this area. Therefore, this research was conducted with the purpose of studying the correlation between nutritional status and body mass index, sleeping hours, and blood lipid composition in the 10-18-year-old group in the Minoodar region of Qazvin. Materials and methods: The population under study consisted of 10-18-year-old children and adolescents covered by the Minoodar Population Research Center. Sampling was performed using multistage cluster random sampling, and questionnaires filled by trained personnel were used to collect demographic, anthropomorphic, nutritional, and biochemical information, and information regarding sleeping hours. SPSS ver. 16 was employed to analyze the information. Findings: Intake of the vegetable and milk (dairy products) groups was low in the studied adolescents compared to other food groups. There was a significant correlation between intake of food groups and sleeping hours (p <0.05), but no correlation was observed between sleeping hours and macronutrients and calorie intake. The HDL cholesterol level had an inverse correlation with protein intake (p=0.006) and carbohydrate intake (p= 0.03). Conclusions: In all, the nutritional status in the studied population was not satisfactory and needs more attention. This study suggests that the lifestyle of the studied adolescents, including their diets, should be corrected
