Abstract:

Anthropometrics can be a sensitive indicator of health, growth and development in infants and children. Measurement of height, weight and nutrient intake are the reliable means to evaluate the nutritional status and it is very much in need. Nutritional status of a sample of 120 adolescent respondents, from Samastipur, district of Bihar were evaluated by anthropometric measurement & nutrient intake. The correlation coefficient between protein and government school adolescent weight (r=0.280) was significantly positive but height and BMI was not significant. The correlation coefficient between protein and private school adolescent weight (r=0.542) and BMI (r=0.500) was positively correlated and highly significant while height was not significant. The correlation coefficient of iron with height, weight and BMI of government school adolescent was not significant. But in private school correlation coefficient of iron with weight (r=0.448) and BMI(r=0.421) was positive and highly significant. Therefore this study suggests that the Anthropometric assessment and nutritional intake of adolescent students in Bihar should further be done for coming to a conclusion.
