Abstract: 

Background: There are about 1.2 billion adolescents, a fifth of the world’s population, and their numbers are increasing. In India the statistics shows that the adolescent population is 8.3 crores, so this large population needs special attention as this period of growth is very important and crucial span of life. Proper nutrition of children belonging to this group is essential so that optimum growth can take place, hence the present study was undertaken to assess nutritional status of adolescent girls. Materials and Methods: Present paper aims at assessing the nutritional status of adolescent girls of Raipur district of Chhattisgarh. 1000 adolescents girls aged between 12 and 18 years were selected from various schools of Raipur district (Chhattisgarh). Anthropometric measurements including weight, height were taken following standard techniques. Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated using international BMI cut-off point for children and adolescence from 12 to 18 years of age. Results: Results revealed that girls of 12 years had highest (37.8%) prevalence of under nutrition. The overall prevalence of under nutrition was (64.7%). Body weight and height of the girls of present study were compared with reference data of NCHS (National Centre for health Statistics 1987), ICMR (Indian Council Medical Research 2010), CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2007-2010) and M.Mitra (2002) which shows that the mean of the present study was lower than NCHS (1987), ICMR(2010) and CDC (2007-2010) and higher than M.Mitra (2002). Conclusion: It was concluded that the school going girls of Raipur district were suffering from very high rate of undernutrition. Nutritional intervention programme should be planned to enhance nutritional status of adolescent girls.
