Seven-day food records of the MONICA project Augsburg dietary survey, which were collected in 1984/85 from 899 men aged 45-64 years (random sample), were used to analyse meal patterns.
The combination of the three traditional meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) with one eating event between was most frequent, followed by two meals with two eating events between and three main meals without any other eating event (31.4 vs. 31.0 vs. 15.6% of all reported days).
Breakfast delivered 17, lunch 29 and dinner 33%, of the total daily energy intake ; all other eating events delivered 21%. The mean contribution of the three meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner to daily protein intake was 14,36 and 36%, to fat intake 17,33 and 35% and to carbohydrate intake 23,25 and 29%, respectively.
Data on meal patterns are important in a comprehensive description of dietary habits of a population for a variety of reasons.
