Abstract: 

Dear Editor, In a recent issue of AIM, I read an article written by Asghari, et al. which tried to explain if diet quality is associated to simple indices of overweight/obesity. It is not necessary to emphasize that both childhood and adulthood obesity are of growing concern in the whole world. Reilly and Dorosty in 1999 explained an epidemic of childhood obesity in UK1 and several other studies i.e. Kelishadi, et al. (2003), Dorosty, et al. (2002), and Maddah (2008) suggest an increasing prevalence of childhood obesity in Iranian children too.
