Efficacy of Millet Based Product on Management of Geophagy: A Randomized Control Trial

Geophagy is a widespread practice in Kenya, this practice was reported by more than 70% of school children aged 10-18 years in Kenya. Geophagy significantly increases the risk of infestation with Ascaris. Eating soil can also physically damage the intestinal mucosa and reduce ability to absorb nutrients. Soil can also effectively bind and remove nutrients that were already present in diet particularly iron and zinc. Despite this, little has been done to combat the problem of geophagy. Traditional foods have huge benefits to human health; however, they are generally uncultivated and under–utilized. This study aimed at utilizing traditional foods – Millet Amaranth and Termite (MAT) snack in helping combat geophagy.
