Dietary intakes of preschool children in la paz el salvador central america



Dietary intakes of preschool children in la paz el salvador central america



Archivos Latinoamericanos de Nutricion 30(1): 49-57



A dietary survey was conducted in a department of El Salvador as part of an assessment of the nutritional status of preschool children. Intake of calories, protein and retinol equivalents were estimated using a 24 h recall technique. The average daily energy intake for children 1-4 yr old was 866 kcal representing 60% of the 1973 level recommended by the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama (INCAP), for this age group, and 76% of the recommended level on a body weight basis. Average protein intake per child per day in the same age group was 31.3 g, which represents 110% of the recommended level for the age group and 136% of the recommended level on a body weight basis. The estimated retinol equivalent intake was 36% of the recommended allowance. The results of the present study were similar to those obtained in the study conducted in El Salvador by INCAP during Sept.-Nov., 1965.
