Abstract


Study on feeding and nutrition of 206 bicycle carriers of charcoal has been carried out on several Lubumbashi roads, that is, Kafubu, Kasenga, Kasumbalesa, Kipopo, Likasi and Rwashi. It results from this study that the nutritional status is standard with a body mass index of 22, 3±1, 9 for a narrow breadth person. Need and food supplies evaluation shows that they have a deficient diet in energy as well as in nutrients (proteins and lipids). These results are alike as those published in the literature. So, we plead in favour of systematic enrichment in diet supplies for this category of carries.

Author Keywords: Feeding, nutrition, carriers, charcoal, Lubumbashi.


Abstract: (french)


L’alimentation et la nutrition de 206 transporteurs à vélo du charbon de bois ont été étudiées sur les axes Kafubu, Kasenga, Kasumbalesa, Kipopo, Likasi et Rwashi à Lubumbashi. Les résultats obtenus indiquent un état nutritionnel normal avec un indice de masse corporel de l’homme à carrure étroite de 22,3±1,9. L’évaluation des besoins et apports alimentaires a montré que les régimes alimentaires étaient déficitaires en énergie et en nutriments (protéines et lipides). Ces résultats sont conformes à ceux publiés dans la littérature et plaident pour un enrichissement systématique des apports en nutriments chez cette catégorie de travailleurs.
