Serum lipid profiles and dietary fat intakes of Canadian preschool children



Serum lipid profiles and dietary fat intakes of Canadian preschool children



Journal of the Canadian Dietetic Associationer 52(2): 97-101



Serum lipid profiles and dietary fat intakes were measured from fasting blood samples and three-day weighed food records respectively, for 70 Canadian preschool age children (42 boys, 28 girls). For boys and girls respectively, the following serum lipid levels (means +/- SD) were determined: triglycerides 0.70 +/- 0.22, 0.76 +/- 0.22, total cholesterol 4.34 +/- 0.57, 4.31 +/- 0.78; HDL-cholesterol 1.27 +/- 0.23, 1.24 +/- 0.18; and, LDL-cholesterol 2.74 +/- 0.54, 2.74 +/- 0.65. The main sources of dietary fat for both boys and girls were: milk and milk products (approximately 25%), meat and alternates (approximately 25%); baked goods (approximately 23%); and, fats (approximately 15%). Dietary fat provided 34% of total energy consumed for boys and 35% for girls. Linoleic acid and saturated fat, respectively, provided 4% and 13% of energy for both boys and girls. Correlation and regression analyses revealed no significant relationships between serum lipid and dietary fat parameters.
