Diet-Related Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices of Low-Income Households with Children.
Guthrie, Joanne F.; Morton, Joan F.
Journal of Early Education and Family Review, v6 n3 p26-33 Jan-Feb 1999
Compared the level of nutrition knowledge of low- and higher-income American consumers with children, and their nutrition attitudes and practices. Found that both groups had Body Mass Indexes above the range of a healthy weight, but that low-income participants were less likely to know nutrition specifics such as diet/disease relationships or serving recommendations from the USDA "Food Pyramid."
