Eating Habits and Nutritional Status Among Adolescents in Republic of Albania

Etleva Kika - Smakaj, Nestor Thereska

Aim: We aimed to assess nutritional status, including nutritional practices, attitudes and eating habits among adolescents in Republic of Albania. Methodology: This is a qualitativequantitative, crosssectional study. In this study we included a sample of 809 individuals chosen randomly from elementary schools and high schools from 12 Districts of Albania. Results: We observed a high percentage of underweight (31, 5 % CI95 %: 23 % 41 %) which had a high consumption of sweets and fats 56, 86 % (CI95 %: 47 % 66 %) and a protective, on the other hand, use of fruits and vegetables 76, 14 % (CI95 %: 67 % 83 %). Also a modest percentage of overweight and obesity was noticed (4, 20 %) which is not a considerable threat. Conclusions: Under- and overweight are the most noticeable issues in our sample. These figures should serve not only as a reference for other studies, but also as a reference for policy and health reforms focusing on adolescents health.
