The current epidemic of COVID-19 has gained attention and highlighted the need for a better understanding of the population's mental health . Diet has been identified as an environmental determinant of mental health . In this regard, it has been suggested that the consumption of palatable foods represents a strategy to mitigate negative emotions, such as anxiety . This study aimed to evaluate the association between symptoms of anxiety and/or anhedonia to food consumption patterns during the period of COVID-19 quarantine in Chile . We conducted a cross-sectional study with non-randomized sampling via an online survey . A total of 1725 responses were collected . Each person self-answered the Beck Anxiety Inventory, Snaith-Hamilton Pleasure Scale for anhedonia, the Food Intake Questionnaire, and questions regarding type and duration of lockdown, as well as body weight and food serving variation . Significant correlations were observed between fried food consumption and self-reported body weight . The subjects who consumed fried food three times a week, had higher weight (63.5 %) (& #967; 2 = 48.5 and p <0.001). Those who ate one and two or more pastries on a week had 1.41 and 1.49, respectively higher odds of reporting increased body weight . We found a relationship anxiety level and sugar-sweetened beverages level (& #967; 2 = 25.5; p 0.013), fast food intake (& #967; 2 = 63.4; p <0.001), and pastry consumption (& #967; 2 = 37.7; p <0.001). In conclusion, it is important to monitor the evolution of these findings since they could represent a risk of increased health problems in the future post-lockdown period.
