Abstract

FOOD SELECTIVITY AND HEALTH IMPLICATION OF CHILDREN OF GROWING AGES IN CALABAR SOUTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA, CROSS RIVER STATE, NIGERIA. WEST AFRICA

Mercy Ukpong, *Bright Ewona, Francis Oshie Edima Duke, Joan Ibor

ABSTRACT

Healthy eating habits help to keep children of growing ages nourished and free from chronic diseases like obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Most children of growing ages (1-5years old) in Africa find it difficult to maintain a good feeding habit either due to personal habits of only preferring a particular diet, genetic factor or poverty. Food selectivity is the habit of refusing to eat a variety of foods. The aim of this research was to examine food selectivity and health implication in children of growing ages in Calabar South Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria, West Africa. In pursuant of this aim, three research questions were formulated to guide the study. Two instruments-Questionnaires and oral interview were used to collate data from 384 parents from health institutions and schools across five major communities in the area. Two sampling techniques, the purposive and simple random sample techniques were employed to select sample for the study. The researcher adopted the survey design method. The findings of the study revealed a significant (p<0.05) impact of food refusal, food poverty and single frequency food intake on the health of children in Calabar South Local Government. Based on the results it was recommended that parents should feed their children with varieties of balanced diets, make baby meals appetizing and adopt gentle and persuasive approaches when feeding their babies.
