Assessing factors influencing adolescents’ dietary behaviours in urban Ethiopia using participatory photography/Public Health Nutrition
Assess factors influencing dietary behaviours of adolescents in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Findings from the current study indicate that food safety concerns appear to be the major influencing factors for adolescents’ dietary choices. Unhealthy and unsafe foods appear to be widely available and/or affordable in adolescents’ neighbourhoods and almost half of the photographs taken by adolescents depicted poor hygiene conditions related to food vendors. Participants considered foods available in their environments as generally unsafe, calling for more packaged food.
