Idea behind the research was generated in view of dietary factors associated with lock down restriction correlation. COVID-19 is a period of lock down where people are being restricted to stay at home, except for those involved in essential services. Kids and adults alike were mandated to stay home to ensure maximum safety. Until few weeks back, there was freedom to move out, there was more choice to pick foods and consume convenience foods. A lot of children were also adopting and adapting the online schooling from their home. There was limited access to cafeterias, food joints and moving out for weekend meals had been curtailed. Now that home food which was most convenient and may be even a forced choice for some, what foods we choose to eat was also limited. The survey concludes and reaches to the point that the children during the lockdown period were having immune boosters, spices, condiments, stored food in their diet along with sugar content mostly seen in females and also we had outcome that people suffered to have junk street food which directly influenced their Body Mass Index.
