Breakfast, Giardia and School Success of Girls in Ardebil Province, Iran

English Abstract

Eating breakfast is important for the growth and nutritional well-being of children. The aims of the study were to compare nutrient intake, Giardia infection, mean score and anthropometric factors, in 2 groups, children who ate breakfast and children who did not. This cross-sectional study was conducted with 20 randomly selected primary schools from 2 regions of Ardebil Province, Iran, in 2005. Anthropometric factors were measured, ie height, weight, and mid-arm muscle circumference (MAC) of 401 males. Three-day food intake was estimated for energy and other nutrients by 24-hour-recall method, and the children were asked whether they ate breakfast, or not. A stool specimen from each girl was prepared in saline and examined by light microscopy and direct smear using the zinc sulfate flotation method. The data were analyzed using independent samples-T test and Chi-square, and Iranian food processor. Of the girls, 20.8% reported having skipped breakfast. Among the girls who ate breakfast, the Giardia-infected skipped breakfast more often than the non-infected (15.4% vs 12.2%), but the difference was insignificant. On average, the taller girls skipped breakfast significantly more often (p < 0.05), but height was not a significant factor among the boys. Weight, BMI (body mass index) and MAC among the children skipping breakfast were significantly higher than among those who ate breakfast (p < 0.05). The average mean scores were not significantly different. There was no association between eating breakfast and Giardia infection. The caloric and nutrient intakes of the children who ate or skipped breakfast were not significantly different. In the present study, skipping breakfast was more prevalent among primary-school girls, which could affect anthropometric factors. However, it did not correlate with Giardia infection, school success, or caloric intake.
