As part of the CoviFam Team at the University of Vienna, I helped conduct a pilot study, investigating changes in diet due to the coronavirus pandemic. The data was collected through a questionnaire and included 118 families. The results showed, that families tend to cook more during the lock-down and that meals were more frequently consumed together as a family. Furthermore, there was a reduction in the consumption of fast food, food delivery and ready-to-eat products. More than a third of families claim to be more conscious of their diet at the moment. Over 40% of families reported an increase in the consumption of snacks, which have a high density of calories, but a low density of nutrients. In general, the results hint at a higher consumption of calories during the lock-down, which could increase the risk of overweight. Statistically significant relationships between level of education of the parents and both conscious thinking of their diet and frequency of vegetable consumption were calculated. Furthermore, the change in frequency of both adults and children snacking due to boredom and the change in frequency of consumption of sweet and salty snacks, as well as desserts were significant. Although the results of the questionnaire were largely qualitative and not quantitative, the increased time spent at home seems to be positively correlated with higher consumption of food, specifically snacks, in families.
