Abstract:

Scientific studies suggest that eating habits of traditional communities all over the world have been suffering changes as a result of gradual replacement of regional products with imported ones and also because of the increase of consumption of carbohydrates and trans fats. The nutritional state of populations, as riverine people in the Amazon region, has been widely affected by factors as changes in the eating and epidemiologic patterns. This study aims at the identification of the perception of dwellers of a riverine community the Brazilian Amazon region on their eating habits, their health and on the changes caused by development. This is a qualitative study, in which we used ethnographic semi structured interviews as a tool to collect data, conducted through a semi structured script, and applied to 16 dwellers/heads of families, in which 11 are men and 5 are women. The interviews were recorded in audio, full text transcribed and analyzed, and resulted in a descriptive system of categories and subcategories. As a result, we identified an increase of purchase capacity, greater participation in the market economy, lack of effective and continuous actions by the administrators of basic health services in the city. These joint factors contribute to the process of nutritional transition that is occurring in the community, as well as to the increase of health vulnerability of the dwellers.
