The purpose of the study was to examine children's intake of fruits and vegetables in relation to the recent national « 5-A-DAY » campaign.
Four 24-hour dietary recalls per child collected from 205 mothers of 4- to 5-year-old urban Latino children were used to analyze average 5-A-DAY consumption, nutrient intakes, and eating patterns.
The reported means servings per day of fruits and vegetables, as defined by 5-A-DAY criteria, were 1.8 and 1.0, respectively, with only 6.8% (n=14) of the children averaging five or more servings per day.
