The Covid-19 pandemic has caused restrictions on activities outside the home including online learning which affects academic stress and food consumption. This study aims to analyze the correlation factors of stress levels and food consumption quality of high school adolescents with overweight and normal nutritional status during a pandemic. The design of this study was comparative cross sectional study of 41 adolescents with normal nutritional status and 41 overweight adolescents selected by purposive sampling. Data was collected through questionnaires and interviews. Based on the results of the Mann-Whitney difference test and Independent Sample T-test, there were significant differences (p<0.05) in the online activity time variable (p=0.41), energy adequacy level (p=0.040), frequency of consumption of staple food (p=0.004), protein vegetable (p=0.021), and drinks (p=0,003) between normal and overweight subjects. The results of the Spearman correlation test showed that there was a significant positive relationship (p<0.05) between the level of adequacy of energy, protein, fat, carbohydrates, and vitamin C with the quality of food consumption. Gender variable has a significant relationship (p<0.05) with stress levels. Based on the Spearman correlation test, there is no significant relationship (p>0.05) between stress levels and the quality of food consumption with nutritional status.
