ABSTRACT
Adolescence is a period of growth and development between childhood and adulthood. It is a crucial period in life and implies physiological and psychological changes that affect physical growth. Adolescence is normally characterized by low levels of disease and death; it is the period of life when mortality rates are lowest.
This study highlights the nutritional status of adolescent girls which is of primary importance as it is a known fact that adolescent girls are future mothers and care givers. This study also aims at determining the socio – economic status, assessing the nutrition knowledge, ascertaining the dietary habits using a food frequency questionnaire and assessing their nutritional status using anthropometric measurement.
