BILBAO CERCOS, Laura; SORIANO DEL CASTILLO, José Miguel; DOMENECH AVARIA, Gloria  and  MARTINEZ ROSILLO, Cruz. The food jaima, food guide for the saharawi children host families. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.6, pp.1384-1390. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: During the summer months, a large group of children are welcomed by Spanish families in order to learn a different reality and improve their state of health and nutrition. Reviewing existing for this type of kids educational tools to foster families, was the need to develop an educational and specific dietary guide in order to solve any doubts about food and nutrition. Objectives: Elaboration of a food guide, the food jaima, to host families of the Saharawi children that will help improve their health during their stay in Spain. Methods: Development of the food jaima and daily activities for the hosted Saharawi children. Results: Our proposal is a food jaima, a graphic-chromatic model, similar to the well-known food pyramids. Different foods are listed in each of the steps and by descending order in recommended daily amount and to one side of it appear daily activities for the hosted Saharan children. Discussion and conclusions: The food jaima is a food guide that allows you to meet the nutritional needs of this type of population in the prevention of diseases related to diet, such as anemia and goiter, and normal growth.
