The present study aimed at controlling the current pattern of street food development in the city of Daloa. A cross-sectional and retrospective survey was carried out among 900 people randomly met in eight of the city', s main neighborhoods. The survey revealed that street food is one of the important sources of food for the populations of the said city (88.9 % of respondents). These foods were mainly consumed by young people (15-25 years old), overwhelmingly by students (40.8 %) and students (33.1 %). The main street foods inventoried were water, fruit juices and beverages, milk and milk products, meat and meat products, fish and fish products, and foods made from tubers and vegetables. The main reasons for their consumption were their accessibility and relatively low cost. However, some diseases including gastroenteritis, diarrhea, vomiting, fevers have been reported by street food users following the consumption of certain street foods such as juices and fruit drinks, milk and products. The information obtained in this study is a database of street food consumption in the city of Daloa, which can be used to help strengthen the institutional capacity of street food actors (hygiene training, education and training, administration and management), and to make consumers aware of the risks involved in the consumption of these foods.
