Nutrient intakes of First Nations people in four Yukon communities.
Nutrient intakes of 122 First Nations (Indian) adults in four Yukon communities were examined from 381 repeated 24-hour recalls collected over four seasons.
Mean nutrient intakes (excluding supplements) met or exceeded Canadian recommendations for protein, phosphorus, iron, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B6, B12, and C. Fat provided 36% of dietary energy.
Mean intakes of calcium, folate and vitamin A were less than recommended, while vitamin D was less than recommended only for older adults.
The proportion of individuals at risk of inadequate nutrient intakes was highest for folate, calcium, vitamins A, D, C and zinc.
Traditional foods contributed on average 17% of daily energy, but 50% or more of daily intakes of protein, vitamin B12, riboflavin, niacin, iron, and zinc.
Traditional foods remain an important source of daily energy and nutrients.
Many Yukon adults, especially older adults, would benefit from greater consumption of foods rich in folate, calcium, vitamins A, D, C and zinc.
