  1. Characteristics of children selecting low-fat foods in an elementary school lunch program.

    Article - En anglais


    To describe the demographic characteristics of children that were associated with the selection of low-fat entrees available in a school lunch program.


    For 5 consecutive months, we recorded student entree selections on the 46 days in which one of the two available lunch entrees was low fat (¾30% of calories from fat).

    Entree selections were tracked using a computerized meal-card system.

    The lunch menus did not indicate that one of the two entrees was low fat.

    Demographic and family characteristics were obtained from the school district's registration database and, in one school, from a household telephone survey.
