Using a brief household food inventory as an environmental indicator of individual dietary practices.
This study examined whether foods in household pantries are an indicator of house-hold members'diet.
In a random-digit-dial survey, the presence in the house of 15 high-fat foods was assessed with whoever answered the phone.
A randomly selected household member was surveyed about diet-related behaviors (n=1002).
Individuals in the contemplation stage of dietary change had more high-fat foods in their pantry than those in maintenance (means of 7.4 and 5.8, respectively).
Individuals with low-fat pantries had an intake of 32% energy from fat vs 37% for those with high-fat pantries.
Household food inventories are a practical and valid approach to monitoring dietary behaviors in community-based studies.
