Nutrient consumption and body size in a group of noninstitutionalized healthy elderly.
Sixty-three noninstitutionalized healthy elderly were assessed for dietary intake by 24 hour recalls.
Intakes of iron, protein, folacin, and calcium were all above 66% of the Recommended Nutrient Intake (RNI) for both male and female groups.
Although zinc intakes by women averaged 82.6% of the RNI, the overall zinc consumption by men was 62.4% of the RNI.
Caloric consumption by both groups was less than the recommended at 82% and 78% of the RNI for females and males respectively.
Anthropometric data suggested an appropriate body size for both sexes.
