Mean daily energy and nutrient intakes were estimated in a community based sample of 712 people aged 70 years and over in Mosgiel, New Zealand, by means of a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire.
The study population included all those people in this age group who were registered with the Mosgiel Health Center.
Eighty five per cent agreed to participate in the dietary part of a detailed multidisciplinary study of nutrition and health in old age.
Mean intakes of most nutrients were above the recommended levels; the only exceptions were low mean intakes of inc and copper, and, among women only, a low mean calcium intake.
