Study of the nutritional balance of vitamin and iron and its psychological impact on Moroccan students, in the case of the universities of Rabat, Marrakech, Tangier and Kenitra (Morocco)

The concept of food balance is theoretically right. The good health of the body depends on the regular intake of the various nutrients it needs. The work we have done. Given the magnitude of this behavior, including students in our universities, we proposed to conduct a survey of 1744 students of both sexes in 4 Moroccan universities: Rabat, Marrakech, Tangier and Kenitra (Morocco)
The results of this survey enabled us to profile the volunteers. Generally, female students are most threatened by malnutrition of certain nutrients, especially vitamins A, D and C and calcium. The prevalence of these students who are in a state of inadequate iron intake which probably exposes them to severe anemia is 54.8%. However, these almost insufficient intakes of these micronutrients make the students enter into a very important psychological stress behavior and especially among the students.
Faced with this alarming situation, the authorities are called upon to multiply efforts to cope with this handicap that affects students, especially those who come from far away from the University City.
