Reported food consumption and dietary habits of New Zealand adolescents.
Six hundred and sixty-seven fifteen year old members of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development study cohort completed a self-administered food frequency and dietary habits inventory.
The results show that only 14 foods were consumed on a regular basis by more than 80% of the cohort.
Statistically significant differences were found between the numbers of boys and girls consuming a variety of foods; generally, more girls consumed fruits and green vegetables and more boys consumed foods rich in fat and sugar.
Several differences were observed in the food consumption of three income groups: fewer adolescents in low income families consumed expensive foods such as steak.
