Diet, Nutritional Status and School Performance of Schoolchildren in the District of Abidjan: Case of Yopougon and Bingerville
The objective of this study is to assess the relationship between food intake, nutritional status and good school performance among schoolchildren in the district of Abidjan. A cross-sectional study was carried out from December 2015 to April 2016 in 426 schoolchildren in Yopougon and Bingerville, two communes in the district of Abidjan. The nutritional status was defined starting from the BMI and calculated with Who Anthro Plus v1.0.4. The student and chi-square tests were used to compare the numbers and proportions. Binary and multiple logistic regressions have been used to see the association between good academic performance and the quality of food consumed and socio-demographic characteristics.
At the time when the lack of indicators seemed to constrain appropriate child feeding in developing countries, dietary diversity score (DDS) emerged as a measure of nutritional adequacy that could close the gap. DDS refers to the number of food groups consumed in a given time, often in 24 hrs.
