Hurry Mega Insani, Lilik Kustiyah, Cesilia Meti Dwiriani


Adolescents have eating behavior problems such as skipping meals, especially breakfast. This behavior can lead to consumption of foods with high fat and sodium content before lunchtime, resulting in obesity in adolescents. In this study, the frequency, time and menu of meals are among the indicators that will be examined by the researcher. This study used a case control design. The research subjects were divided into two treatment groups and one control group. The results showed that more than half of the subjects ate breakfast every day at 6-7 AM in the morning with a menu of rice and side dishes..
