RESUMO

This paper presents a technique and tool for use in the collection of dietary information and for nutrition education among a wide range of clients, including those with low literacy, children, and persons with impaired hearing. The tool is a set of two-dimensional food models that are mounted on cardboard or heavy paper and then laminated. This paper descibes their use for the collection of food frequency data, data on food beliefs and attitudes, and meal planning especially among the Caribbean population. The technique is also useful to assess the effect of nutrition education when used in a pre-test/post-test protocol. The tool and technique are inexpensive and can be used repeatedly.(AU)

RESUMO

For the period covered by the study sardines were still being used by a wide crossection of the society. The ease in preparing sardines, their nutritive value and cost were chief factors affecting the amounts purchased and used. Sardines were a standard breakfast and lunch item. They were also used by the lower income groups for dinner. It, therefore could be concluded that inspite of price movements, sardines are still being used by all socio-economic groups in the society

RESUMO

Improvements in lifestyles, particularly weight control, dietary practices, exercise habits and self esteem in youth have been found to lessen the probability of obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and heart attack in adulthood. A school-based project is being implemented to test this in the Caribbean. Baseline data on knowledge, attitudes, and practice of 2,910 students were collected from 2 intervention and 2 Secondary/High Schools. Sixteen (16) percent of the children thought that they were too thin while 13 percent thought they were too fat. Only 44 percent said that they knew how to accurately measure their weight and height. However, 82 percent wanted to know how to maintain desirable weights. Seventy-one (71) percent thought that weighing was related to health. Forty-nine (49) percent believed that weighing right is healthy while 51 percent and 36 percent thought that being too fat and too thin, respectively, can lead to ill health. Sixty-one (61) percent of the sample thought that eating right meant having the right type and amount of food. Fifty (50) percent usually had three (3) meals per day while 32 percent ate as many times as possible. Sixty-seven (67) percent, 62 percent and 53 percent of the students said that sweet, greasy and salty foods, respectively, are unhealthy. Thirty (30) percent of the sample usually add salt ot prepared food while 33 percent did so occasionally. Ninety-one (91) percent of the sample thought it important for everyone to exercise. However, only 28 percent exercised regularly. Sixty-three (63) percent of the students belonged to groups either at school or in their communities. Ninety-five (95) percent thought it was all right to feel good about themselves, and 71 percent considered themselves worthwhile. These results are useful not only in determining the nature of the intervention needed to facilitate the desired changes in lifestyles, but also in identifying variables which may serve as bases for future evaluations (AU)
