When it comes to food, there has been a noticeable increase in the consumption of snacks, fast food, sweets, meat, milk products and savory. This increase is met by a decrease in the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. This change is moving forward towards transforming the lifestyle, and several surveys showed that the increase in consumption of fats and carbohydrates as well as other mentioned products lead to high calorie intake which increases the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) [1]. It also noted that this risk is transferred to an earlier age as it is now including preadolescents as well as the late adulthood stage, this will increase the incidence of T2DM unless a health program is developed to combat this risk [2].
