Abstract:   (638 Views)
In general, results of studies show that the nutritional status of boarding schools is unsatisfactory. Since adolescence is one of the most critical periods of growth, nutrition plays important roles in personal, social and mental health of the adolescents. Furthermore, results of studies from this review show that the intake of calorie and nutrients in most boarding school students is inadequate, especially in less developed countries. Therefore, interventions such as allocating further food budgets, using fortified foods, participating charities in providing foods and other requirements and using essential supplements such as vitamin D, iron and calcium should be carried out for these school students.
