NUTRITIONAL HEALTH OF TEENAGERS.
HILL, MARY
SURVEYS HAVE SHOWN THAT SOME TEENAGERS HAVE FOOD INTAKES THAT FAIL TO SUPPLY THE RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCE FOR EACH OF THE NUTRIENTS. HOWEVER, THE NUMBER OF TEENAGERS CLASSIFIED AS HAVING INADEQUATE NUTRIENT INTAKES DEPENDS UPON WHICH REVISION OF THE RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCES HAS BEEN USED AS A BASE FOR EVALUATION. IN EXAMINING THE REVISIONS, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE MINIMUM DAILY REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN NUTRIENTS SUCH AS PROTEIN, RIBOFLAVIN, IRON, AND CALCIUM HAD CHANGED. THE APPLICATION OF THE DIETARY GUIDE SHOULD BE DONE CAREFULLY, AS MANY TEENAGERS ARE WELL FED AND HAVE HAD GOOD EATING HABITS FROM CHILDHOOD. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS IDENTIFYING ACCESS POINTS IN TIME AND PLACE WHEN ADULTS CAN MAKE AVAILABLE GOOD NUTRITIONAL FOOD THAT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO MEETING THE PHYSICAL AND SOCIAL NEEDS OF TEENAGERS. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (SF)
