  • Factors Associated with Utilization of Postpartum Care Services in
           Luanshya District

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Mwangala Simataa, Alfred MakakaniUtilization of postpartum services is a major concern worldwide due to the great impact it has on infant and maternal mortality. Postpartum is defined as the first six weeks (42 days) following delivery of an infant. Care during this time is for the health and survival of the mother and the new born. Current estimation of Luanshya postpartum coverage of first postpartum care is 15% which is far below the recommended 80% by WHO. This study was therefore aimed at determining the factors associated with utilization of postpartum care services in Luanshya District. An analytical cross-sectional study was conducted on 187 mothers taking the children to the clinic aged between seven weeks to three months. Data was collected using questionnaires having both closed and open-ended questions. Stata 11 was used for statistical analysis of quantitative data. Qualitative data was explored for emerging themes and the frequency of themes were quantified. Chi-square was used to determine association of the variables. Logistic Regression analysis was used to ascertain which variables significantly affected the dependent variable. The findings from this study revealed that postpartum attendance was very low and stood at 27.8%. The major factors associated with low utilization of postpartum services were: postponement of sixth day postpartum care for Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) (46%), feeling ill after delivery 29.4% and tradition 62.8%. This study demonstrated that there are gaps in the utilization of postpartum care services. Capacity and accessibility of health systems as well as cultural and religious practices are areas that affect postpartum care and hence should be worked on especially at community level. Such programs should include male involvement, influential family members such as grandmothers as well as traditional and religious leaders. Newborn babies should be vaccinated with BCG vaccine at birth so that the postpartum care appointments should be specifically for postpartum care.
       
  • Comparison of Dietary Diversity among Women-Child Pairs from Households
           Participated in Integrated Agricultural Interventions: A Cross Sectional
           Study

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Mengistu Fiseha Mekonnen, Derese Tamiru Desta, Zemenu Kerie TerefeImproving nutrition requires many efforts through nutrition sensitive activities. Series of inter linked intervention activities in the Ethiopian humid tropics field sites has been conducted in the Western Oromia Region, Ethiopia. This study was conducted to determine the contribution of integrated agricultural farm interventions for dietary diversity of women and children. We employed comparative cross sectional study design among the women child pair participating and not participating in the integrated agricultural interventions in Diga and Jeldu districts of Western Oromia. A total of 345 mother child pairs were included for this study. SPSS version 20 software was used for data analyses. Minimum Dietary Diversity for Women and Child were computed and tested by Chi-square and Independent Sample t-test to check the differences among the group. The majorities of mothers were married and protestant religion followers. We found that mean dietary diversity was less than the recommended intake among mother child pairs. However, the percentages of recommended minimum dietary diversity consumption across the groups of mother-child pairs were found to be different. The dietary diversity score was higher among those mother child pair participated in the integrated agricultural farming interventions. Legumes, Vitamin A rich and other Fruits & Vegetables, and Eggs consumption were higher among the children from participated in the integrated farming intervention.Considering the findings of the current study, holistic agricultural interventions aiming at improving dietary diversity of the vulnerable groups in the community has to be strengthened.
       
  • Socioeconomic and Demographic Differences in Food Group Intakes of
           Adolescents in Urban Benin

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 5Eunice Nago, Saturnin Houndji, Sherifath Mama ChabiAdolescence constitutes a good period to shape lifelong healthy eating habits to prevent excess weight and related chronic diseases. This study identified socioeconomic and demographic factors associated with the consumption of healthy and potentially harmful food groups among adolescents in urban Benin, as a contribution for the development of diet promotion interventions. Data were collected from 408 participants aged 13 to 19 years in 12 secondary schools in Cotonou, the biggest city in Benin. Food intake was assessed by two 24-hour dietary recalls and demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, using a questionnaire. Predictors of the consumption of healthy and potentially unhealthy food groups were identified using multilevel regression analysis. Adolescents from wealthier households ate 28g more meat and 122g more sweet foods than those from poor households. Females ate 23g more meat than males, and younger adolescents consumed 144g more sweet foods than the older. It was concluded that in urban Benin, the diet of younger female adolescents from wealthier households is more indicative of changes towards a western diet associated with the risk of obesity and related chronic diseases. This subgroup needs be targeted in priority during promotional activities to improve adolescents’ diet.
       
  • Heterogeneous Catalysts for Biodiesel Production: A Review

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 4Ramon Sousa Barros Ferreira, Rafaela Menezes dos Passos, Klicia Araujo Sampaio, Eduardo Augusto Caldas BatistaBiodiesel is a biofuel and appears on the world energy scene as a strong substitute for petroleum diesel for its renewable and less environmentally polluting character. It can be obtained from transesterification reaction of triacylglycerol from vegetable oils or animal fats with short chainalcohol in the presence of homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysts. In recent years the production of alkyl ester by using heterogeneous catalysts it has excelled due to their capacity for regeneration, reuse and reduction of processing stages. Several parameters have been evaluated in the reaction steps, such as amount of catalyst, molar ratio of alcohol:oil, temperature, agitation speed and reaction duration. Intrinsic properties of catalysts are also studied, such as porosity, surface area, catalytic activity and others. Therefore, this review presents the transesterification reaction of several raw materials, as sources of triacylglycerols, using short chain alcohols and different heterogeneous catalysts. Optimal conditions for each catalyst, as well as its respective reaction mechanisms, were summarized.
       
  • Degumming Alternatives for Edible Oils and Biodiesel Production

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 5Rafaela Menezes dos Passos, Ramon Sousa Barros Ferreira, Eduardo Augusto Caldas Batista, Antonio J. A. Meirelles, Guilherme J. Maximo, Marcela Cravo Ferreira, Klicia Araujo SampaioVegetable oils are predominantly composed of triacylglycerols (>95%), besides that, a wide variety of minor components including free fatty acids, phystosterols, tocopherols, colour pigments, metals and phospholipids are present in oils and fats. The presence of phospholipids in vegetable oils can cause oil darkening during the deodorization step and the inactivation of the lipases during the enzymatic transesterification process. The first step of the refining process is the degumming, which is designed to remove phospholipids. Traditional degumming processes such as water degumming and acid degumming cannot guarantee the low phosphorus content required for physical refining. Enzymatic degumming is a new process that uses enzymes known as phospholipases, which hydrolyze the phospholipids releasing fatty acids or diacylglycerols, thus increasing the oil yield. Moreover, due to the reduced reaction time and/or to the increased productivity, the ultrasonic technique has also been recently employed in association with degumming processes. Therefore, the purpose of this review is to present relevant studies on enzymatic degumming for edible oils and biodiesel production, from enzymatic catalysis, considering the most recent alternatives for product quality improvement and process costs reduction, with a focus on the simultaneous use of enzymatic degumming and ultrasonic technique.
       
  • Socio-cultural Determinants of Food Security and Consumption Patterns in
           Kisumu, Kenya

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 4Fredrick Omondi OwinoFood security is an important measure of well-being of a household or community. It takes into consideration three dimensions namely availability, access and utilization. Even though it may not contain all dimensions of poverty, the inability of these households or communities to obtain access to enough food for a productive healthy life is an important component of their poverty. People from diverse backgrounds eat different types of food so as to retain their cultural identity. These communities living in Kisumu are defined by their own food culture. This study looked at production, distribution and storage of food among the communities living in Kisumu. It also examined the food habits, practices and beliefs associated with the households living in Kisumu. The research employed both qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection. Content analysis was also used in the study. The research revealed that there is a food culture which has rich cultural practices which defines the community. At the same time, different cultures interact with one another and thus interfering with some of these traditional practices and beliefs.
       
  • A Pilot School-based Intervention to Increase Fruit Intake in Adolescents
           in Urban Benin

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 4Eunice Nago, Sherifath Mama ChabiLow- and middle-income countries are encountering notable dietary and lifestyle changes referred to as the nutrition transition, as it happened in high income countries many decades ago. These changes are especially noticeable in urban areas and characterized by poorer quality diet, among others. The present study aimed at testing the ability of a school-based fruit intervention to increase the daily fruit intake of adolescents in Cotonou, a city of Benin, a low-income country. The study also examined whether the intervention affected overall daily diet, particularly intakes of vegetables and sweet foods. The intervention was designed based on findings of a previous study. It lasted 2 months and consisted in operating a fruit stall under strict hygiene conditions, in a school selected by convenience. The study used a pre-post design without controls. Baseline and follow-up anthropometric and 24-hour dietary recall data were analysed in 229 participants. Mean fruit consumption at school was 175g higher at follow-up in consumers, identified as students who ate fruits from the stall. Consumers’ daily fruit intake increased by 166g, significantly more than in non-consumers. The contribution of fruit consumption at school to consumers’ daily fruit intake rose from 3% at baseline to 78%. On average, their daily fiber intake increased significantly and fat energy contribution in their daily diet declined from 33 to 28%, a level in the normal range. Hence, the intervention is promising and could be an efficient and sustainable means to promote fruit consumption and healthy diet in adolescents in urban Benin.

  • Factors Associated with Adherence to Iron-Folic Acid Supplementation among
           Pregnant Women Attending ANC Clinic North Shewa Health Institution,
           Ethiopia 2016

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 3Asnakech Sisay, Nitsubirhan Asres, Mikyas AregaBackground:- Anemia is a global public health problem affecting both developing and developed countries with major consequences for human health as well as social and economic development. It occurs at all stages of the life cycle, but is more prevalent in pregnant women and young children. Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) was considered to be among the most important contributing factors to the global burden of disease and folic acid deficiency is also the major contributing factor for congenital anomalies. Objective:-To assess the factors associated with adherence to iron-folic acid supplementation among pregnant women attending ANC clinic in selected governmental health institution, North shewa, Ethiopia 2016. Methodology: - Institutional based cross sectional study design was employed. On this study 693 respondents was participated. Data was collected using interview pre-tested and semi structured questionnaire of Amharic version. The data was cleaned, coded and entered into EPi info versions 3.1 and transferred to SPSS version 21 windows for analyses. Both Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis was carried out to see significant association. Result: - It was intended to distribute 702 targeted sample questionnaires of this 693 were completed and returned with a response rate of (98.7%). Pregnant women who had less than 30 min waiting time were 5.93 times more likely to be adhered to IFAS than who take greater than 30 min in health facility (AOR=5.93, 95% CI: 3.4-10.1). Pregnant women who take health education were 6.25(2.5-15.4) times more likely to be adhered to IFAS than who didn’t take health education (AOR=6.25, 95% CI: 2.5-15.4). Conclusion: - This study show that only 25% of the pregnant women were adhered to iron folic acid supplementation. Recommendation: - Sensitization of pregnant women by health providers is very important to continue supplements of iron and folate throughout pregnancy. Provision of health education on anemia and importance of FANC are necessary.
