Nutritional Analysis for Pre-Schoolers

Posted by Bob Gottlieb on June 26, 2008

Question from a Nursing Graduate Student

Q. Do you have any suggestions or recommendations of nutritional analysis programs that parents have used (and have liked using)? If not, can you suggest an analysis program that has been used extensively in research of pre-schoolers?

A. There is a Nutrition Data System for Research, based on parental recall of preschoolers’ intake, but we don’t know of any programs parents are able to use. The citation for the study is:

Fitzgibbon ML, Stolley MR, Schiffer L, Van Horn L, KauferChristoffel K, Dyer A. Two-year follow-up results fro HIP-HOP to Heath JR.: A randomized controlled trial for overweight prevention in preschool minority children. Journal of Pediatrics 2005;146:618-625.
