Abstract


Authors of this article have carried out a study on food consumption, nutrition and energetical expensens of 426 students living in halls of residence of UNILU. Results from this study show that 53, 5% of students have a standard feeding with a bodily masss index varying between 18, 5% and 25, 9%. 20, 2% of boarders are under feed, but 26, 3% are obese, and only 26, 8% have a sport practice. Needs and food supplies evaluation in regards to activities shows that the diet is characterized with two meals which the main is taken at evening, whereas food toying is picked at along the day which supply energetical needs of 51, 6% boarder students. So 28, 6% of boarders have an excessive energetical balance whereas 19, 8% show a deficit. From the above results, authors of this study plead in favor of setting up restaurants and soup kitchens in the university hall of residence. The sport practice must as well be done.

Author Keywords: Feeding, nutrition, energetic balance, boarder students, UNILU.


Abstract: (french)


L’alimentation, la nutrition et les dépenses énergétiques de 426 étudiants résidents sur les cités universitaires de l’Université de Lubumbashi à Lubumbashi ont été étudiées. Les résultats obtenus indiquent un état nutritionnel normal pour 53,5% des étudiants avec un indice de masse corporel compris dans la fourchette entre 18,5-25,9. 20,2% des étudiants sont dénutris, 26,3 en surcharge pondérale ou obèse et seuls 26,8% pratiquent du sport. L’évaluation des besoins et des apports alimentaires en fonction des activités a montré que le régime alimentaire caractérisé par deux repas dont le principal le soir et des grignotages couvrait les besoins énergétiques de 51,6% des internes. 28,6% des internes ont un bilan énergétique excédentaire contre 19,8% qui en ont un déficitaire. Ces résultats plaident pour l’instauration des restaurants et des cantines ainsi que la pratique généralisée du sport par les étudiants aux cités universitaires.
