The nutritional status of children of displaced families in Beirut.
The nutritional status of children of displaced families in Greater Beirut was investigated in 1986 (a sample of 146 householdsl and in 1991 (137 households).
Data on demographic variables, nutrient intake (calories, protein, and iron), and anthropometric measurements were collected.
Iron intake was only 50-57% of the RDA for the 1-3 age group, and 35.6% and 32.0% of all children consumed <60% of the RDA for iron in 1986 and 1991, respectively.
Main sources of protein were dairy products, milk and eggs.
The lower nutrient intake in 1991 compared to 1986 was negatively related to social class.
Anthropometric measurements showed an increased past and recent undernutrition of the children in 1991 as compared to both the 1986 child sample and the NCHS standard child population.
