Review of literature on nutritional status
The TALENT (Transforming Adolescent Lives through Nutrition) collaboration aims to conduct qualitative and quantitative nutritional research among adolescents in five low-and middle-income countries (India, The Gambia, Ethiopia, South Africa and Cote D’Ivoire) and to develop interventions to improve adolescent nutrition. This literature review sought to describe. We reviewed what studies on nutrition have been conducted for adolescents living in Côte d'Ivoire. Design: A scoping literature review, searching for any quantitative studies published from 1 January 2000 to 1 May 2019, referenced in PubMed and grey literature, related to adolescent nutritional status and diet, written in English or French. LITERATURE REVIEW NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT The first step in the nutritional care process is the assessment of the patient’s current status. Nutritional status expresses the degree to which physiologic needs for nutrients are being met (Mahen and Escott-Stump 1996). Studies indicate that upon Literature review: nutritional factors influencing academic achievement in school age children. Students who consume a balanced diet perform better in exams, show better behaviour as well as attendance at school and get their assigned tasks done more thoroughly compared with those who do not consume a balanced diet. Review of evidence on nutrition status of the adolescents girls and A Review of Selected Studies on the Factors Associated A Review of Selected Studies on the Factors Associated A Review of Selected Studies on the Factors Associated This review article summarizes the published literature on adolescent nutrition in Cote d'Ivoire.
Most research to date has focused on micronutrient deficiencies (anemia) and parasitic infections. The studies found high prevalence of undernutrition, as well as an emerging double burden of overweight and obesity. This paper reviewed the literature on factors associated with the nutrition status of children under five years of age in South Africa from 2010 to 2019. This paper extracted relevant information from literature sources. To ensure that the extracted data was descriptive, we applied a robust selection and exclusion criteria when selecting studies. Malnutrition is a significant factor in predicting cancer patients’ quality of life (QoL). We systematically reviewed the literature on the role of nutritional status in predicting QoL in cancer. We searched MEDLINE database using the terms “nutritional status” in combination with “quality of life” together with “cancer”. Existing data on adolescent nutritional status is limited in scope and quality: it has not been routinely collected as it has for women and young children. Although 2017 saw the release of a much-needed initial assessment of ways to improve nutrition in adolescent girls, its analysis did not cover all available data and excluded adolescent boys.
