Abstract or Summary
  • The nutrient intake of forty-five participants in the Title IIIc Elderly Nutrition Program in rural Oregon was assessed through 7-day dietary records. The 1980 Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) were used to assess adequacy of intake. There were no statistically significant differences between the 7- day nutrient intakes of those who received home-delivered meals and those who ate at meal-sites one to four times a week. Age and sex of the subjects did not influence their nutrient intakes. The participants' overall seven-day dietary intakes of energy, calcium and vitamin B-6 were significantly (each p<0.05) below the RDA. Thiamin intake by the females was also significantly (p<0.05) below the RDA. Fat, as a percentage of energy intake, was significantly (p<0.05) greater than 30%. For some participants the Program Meals contributed over 50% of the total carbohydrate, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C intake for the sevenday period. It can be concluded that the provision of more Program Meals would increase the nutrient intake of the elderly who participate in the program.
