Dear all,

I am currently writing my master's thesis on determinants of nutrition status among secondary school adolescents in southwest region of Uganda. I am in need of any guiding tools (questionnaire samples) I could use to assess adolescent nutrition knowledge levels. I'll be humbled to receive them.

Thank you

Hi Angella

Nutrition knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) surveys are widely used to assess nutrition knowledge in a variety of population groups (including adolescents) in a variety of settings. The FAO has published a reference guide and tools for conducting such surveys here: Guidelines for assessing nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes and practices (fao.org) and there are similar guidelines/tools available here:The KAP Survey Model (SPRING)

Various questionnaires have also been used to assess nutrition knowledge in individual research projects, tailored according to the context. There are many examples from peer-reviewed publications, but this review of the literature summarising nutritional status of school-age children and adolescents in low- and middle-income countries across seven global regions may be a good place to start to identify existing research and tools used to assess adolescent diet and determinants (including nutrition knowledge): Nutritional status of school-age children and adolescents in LMICs (PHN)

Hope that helps.

Stephanie
