Nutrient consumption and body size in a group of institutionalized elderly.
Seventy-seven reasonably healthy institutionalized elderly were assessed for dietary intake.
Interindividual variation in nutrient consumption was high.
Mean intakes of iron, protein, calcium and folacin were above 66% of the Canadian RNIs for both sexes.
Mean zinc intakes were 59% and 53% of the RNI's for females and males respectively.
Mean energy intakes were recorded at 74% of the RNI yet anthropometric measurements suggest an adequate body size in the overall group.
