‘Grandfather‘of nutrition goes into retirement

Food accessibility (where foods are sold, what types of foods are available, and their proximity to the consumer), affordability, marketing, and culture all have a significant influence on an individuals food choices and diet quality. In addition to the research agenda, ASN identified five cross-cutting tools that are essential to advance nutrition research to the next level in the 21st century: omics (genomics, proteomics, or metabolomics); bioinformatics; databases; biomarkers; and, cost effectiveness analysis. The development of new tools will let researchers more effectively quantify dietary intake and food waste and quantify the impact of current nutrition standards, such as the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). Without development of these tools, cutting-edge, translatable research in nutrition science will not occur.

For me to have been able to develop a programme for the Department of Animal and Food Science of the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), was indeed a thing of joy for me. Working through the past 35 years, first as a teacher and administrator at the level of developing programmes for the take-off of the Department of Animal and Food Science, which later metamorphosed into department of Food Science Technology at the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), as well as developing the curriculum and programme for the take off of the present College of Food Science and Human Ecology at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) was not a mean one. Even at that, Prof Oguntona said: Nutrition is a profession I look back at and I cherish with nostalgia. I will surely miss that real passion for teaching in my retirement but then the good thing is I am not going to entirely quit teaching. In the first instance, I already have a year consultancy with FUNAAB and I will take postgraduate students and afterwards, I will take on to some other things, which would unfold. In his active 35 years of developing nutrition in Nigeria, he said he considers his major achievements that give him intense satisfaction to include initiating and, galvanising the establishment of nutrition programmes in many Nigerian educational institutions. I have published (with another colleague) the only text on the Composition of Foods commonly consumed in Nigeria. The only truly national survey of Food Consumption and Nutritional Status of Nigerians were conducted between 2001 and 2003 by a team of which I was the zonal co-ordinator. That was a seminal work that surveyed families in every nook and cranny of this country and it is an indication of the state of commitment of the cognate federal ministries to Nutrition issues that such a survey has not been attempted ten years after.
