ABSTRACT
Life in the university involves both academic and social learning for students who are from different social, economic and ethnical backgrounds hence a change of environment which can impact on personality, attitudes and behavior of the students. This may be extended to the feeding habits and eventually to nutritional status of the students may make poor choices which may affect their nutritional status as they join university and this may continue throughout their campus life (Cruz, 2000; Isa & Masuri, 2011). University being a multicultural society, differences in foods habits is evident and this has been influenced by factor like acculturation, students’ class schedules, peer pressure etc. In these situations, their nutritional status can be impacted since one cannot tell if they are well nourished or not. Therefore the purpose of this study was to establish the perception, knowledge and attitude of undergraduate students towards the importance of breakfast in a private tertiary institution. The study was conducted within Babcock University using a cross sectional study design targeting the 8 resident halls residing within university with a sample size of 398 students using random sampling procedure from a total estimate of 3382 students. Data collection tool was a self-structured questionnaire. Data analysis was done using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS, Inc., Version 21). Descriptive statistics were calculated for all survey items. Pie Chart were performed to identify Differences in terms of responses to perception, knowledge and attitude of undergraduate students towards the importance of breakfast in a private tertiary institution.
