BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Fast-food consumption has greatly increased in Taiwan. Frequent fast food intake is associated with both allergy and obesity. The aim of this study was to describe fast food habit changes, and to assess the relationship between fast food intake and the risk of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) among Taiwanese adolescents. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN This analysis used data from the Nutrition and Health Survey in Taiwan (NAHSIT) of high school students…

Association Between Ultra‐Processed Food Consumption and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders: Results From the French NutriNet‐Santé Cohort
TLDR
This study suggests an association between UPF and IBS, and further longitudinal studies are needed to confirm those results and understand the relative impact of the nutritional composition and specific characteristics of UPF in this relationship.
Markers of healthy eating habits, water intake, and constipation in children between 4 and 7 years of age
TLDR
Unhealthy eating habits among children, such as the lack of fruit and greens intake and the consumption of “instant” chocolate drinks and fried foods, were found to be positively correlated with constipation.
The Relationship between Functional Constipation and Major Dietary Patterns in Iranian Adults: Findings from the Large Cross-Sectional Population-Based SEPAHAN Study
TLDR
The association between traditional (TD), fruit and vegetables dominant (FVD), and Western (WD) was not significant for both genders and for the total sample, but poor adherence to the FVD was associated with a higher risk of constipation in men and in thetotal sample.
Functional gastrointestinal disorders and smartphone use in adolescents
TLDR
The present study aimed to assess the prevalence of FGIDs in children aged 11–14 years using the new Rome IV Diagnostic Criteria in a large sample and to investigate their association with lifestyle and smartphone addiction.
Dietary Habits and Abdominal Pain-related Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders: A School-based, Cross-sectional Analysis in Greek Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Assessment of the relation of dietary habits with the likelihood of abdominal pain-related functional gastrointestinal disorders in children in Greece showed that reduced fish and increased junk food consumption were related to a higher likelihood of AP-FGIDs.
The role of selected dietary and lifestyle factors in the occurrence of symptoms in children with functional abdominal pain - a pilot study.
TLDR
The results suggest that simple recommendations relative to modifiable lifestyle factors, such as diet or physical activity, may reduce abdominal pain intensity and improve stool frequency in children with FAP.
Functional gastrointestinal disorders, lifestyle habits, and smartphone addiction in adolescents.
TLDR
Smartphone addiction was found to be associated with FGIDs, which are common in pediatric populations and have an impact on QoL.
Western Dietary Pattern Is Associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome in the French NutriNet Cohort
TLDR
In this study, a “western” DP—highly correlated with the consumption of fatty and sugary products and snacks—was associated with a moderate increased risk of IBS.
Fiber Patterns in Young Adults Living in Different Environments (USA, Spain, and Tunisia). Anthropometric and Lifestyle Characteristics
TLDR
Total fiber intake increased with energy intake but did not depend on smoking habits and physical activity in any country, and it is essential to improve consumers’ interpretation of guidelines on fiber intake.
Eating habits, lifestyle and intestinal constipation in children aged four to seven years.
TLDR
An association between intestinal constipation and unhealthy habits, such as non-consumption of fruits and vegetables, and regular consumption of fried food was observed, requiring changes in the lifestyle and eating habits of the children and family.

Western-Style Fast Food Intake and Cardiometabolic Risk in an Eastern Country
TLDR

Fast food: unfriendly and unhealthy
TLDR
It is found that fast food from major chains in most countries still contains unacceptably high levels of industrially produced trans-fatty acids (IP-TFA), which have powerful biological effects and may contribute to increased weight gain, abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease.
Dietary Lipids and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders
TLDR
Large studies are needed to evaluate dietary patterns and eating behavior in patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders, with often-conflicting outcomes, and the role of targeted dietary interventions for the relief of symptoms to develop personalized, cost-effective treatment approaches.
Childhood functional gastrointestinal disorders: child/adolescent.
TLDR
The Rome III child and adolescent criteria represent an evolution from Rome II and should prove useful for both clinicians and researchers dealing with childhood FGIDs.
Short-Chain Carbohydrates and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders
TLDR
There is now an accumulating body of evidence that supports the notion that FODMAPs trigger gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with functional bowel disorders, and that a diet low in FodMAPs offers considerable symptom relief in the majority of patients who use it.
Sleep problems and functional disability in children with functional gastrointestinal disorders: An examination of the potential mediating effects of physical and emotional symptoms
TLDR
Sleep problems are common in pediatric FGIDs and are associated with functional disability through their impact on physical symptoms, although adolescents were more likely to have sleep onset issues than younger children.
