Dietary patterns of rural elderly females in Malaysia



Dietary patterns of rural elderly females in Malaysia



Ecology of food and nutrition4(3): 213-221



Interviews which collected data on dietary patterns were conducted with 317 rural Malay females age 55 and older. Cultivated, wild, and purchased foods all contributed to the household food supplies of subjects. Over 90% reported eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, while daily snacking patterns were less consistent. Estimates of food intake frequency indicate that a variety of foods were eaten by these women. The most frequently consumed foods were rice, cooking oil, dried anchovies, sugar, and fresh fish. Intake frequency for individual food items tended to decrease with increasing age but increase with increasing income.
