  The purpose of this study was to investigate the importance of milk consumption in the diet of secondary school students in Ibadan North and Akinyele local government areas of Oyo State, Nigeria. Questionnaire was used to elicit information from the students and simple randomly sampling was used to select forty students each from public secondary schools students of urban and rural areas and also forty students from private secondary school in both rural and urban areas. The sample consisted of equal number of males and females. Frequency distributions and percentages were calculated. Student’s t-test was used to determine whether there is significant difference between milk consumption and developmental indices of students. The findings revealed that respondents’ preference was more to liquid than powdered milk while the purchasing power was also in-like manner. The private secondary school students had the highest daily consumption rate and purchasing power than the public school students. The results further revealed that there were statistical differences in height of students (both sexes) of the rural and urban secondary school students while there was no significant difference in the weight and forearms of private and the public secondary school students in both urban and rural. Milk is important in the diet of secondary school students since they are in their developmental stages of life, therefore the study recommends the introduction of school milk programme sponsored by government. Also, nutritional education should be introduced to academic curriculum of secondary school.

  This study presents the report of an educational and nutritional initiative undertaken to prevent and control HIV/AIDS infection among inhabitants of a rural community in Kwara State, Nigeria. The goals of the initiative were to obtain base-line information relating to the inhabitants’ HIV/AIDS knowledge and feeding practices and to boost participants’ HIV/AIDS and nutritional knowledge and practices. In order to achieve the objectives of the initiative, survey, interview and focus group discussion procedures were employed to elicit data from 165 purposively selected male and female students and parents (comprising 67 students and 98 parents) in Oloru village, Nigeria. A 79-item Questionnaire was used to elicit data on respondents’ HIV/AIDS and nutritional knowledge, food choices and feeding practices. A 33-slide power point HIV/AIDS lecture on six major aspects of HIV/AIDS was presented to boost participants’ HIV/AIDS knowledge while, nutritional education and food preparation demonstration were undertaken to modify their nutritional knowledge and feeding practices. Findings of the study showed, among others, that more students than parents demonstrated adequate knowledge of HIV/AIDS education but <50% of either group appeared to have good HIV/AIDS knowledge although, local availability of classes of food was reported only carbohydrate meals were typically eaten in the community. Based on the findings, integration of HIV/AIDS, Sexuality and Life Skills education into the secondary school curriculum and more aggressive promotion of public enlightenment programmes through appropriate HIV/AIDS and nutritional education were considered critical to HIV/AIDS prevention in rural communities.
