    Article - En anglais



    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.
