Neutrosophic Sets and Systems


The study carried out at the Tajamar Health Center allows the evaluation of the educational strategies to be followed by the mothers of children aged from 2 to 5 years, leading to the definition of a correct nutrition pattern and its correlation with the value of anthropometry by applying the TOPSIS Neutrosophic method. A descriptive, qualitative, quantitative and field study was conducted. In order to determine the level of knowledge of the children's mothers, we used the survey as a technique; which allowed to identify the status of nutrition in which they are and whether the growth and development of each child is according to their age or not. While carrying out the investigation, it was confirmed that there is an eating disorder in children, since 50% of the mothers prepare their food based on carbohydrates. In addition, only 20% of the mothers indicate that they put fruit in their children’s lunchboxes; 55% refers to the consumption of junk food. The lack of physical activity is often a risk factor for diseases due to eating disorder. The obtained results allow the implementation of strategies based on the assessment of nutritional status in order to improve the lifestyle of each children.
