CURRENT CLINICAL NUTRITION ISSUES: PDF OnlyMontgomery Deanna H. PhD RD LD; Briley, Margaret E. PhD, RD, LDTOPICS IN CLINICAL NUTRITION: October 1995 - p 78-84 Buy Abstract A prototype 12-month nutrition education program conducted in a police department was evaluated after 72 months for long-term effects on dietary intake. Follow-up intakes of energy, fat (as percent of kilocalories [Kcal]) and carbohydrates (as percent of kcal) were significantly different from initial values. Nutrient intakes at the end of the 12-month program were predictive of 72-month intake for Kcal, from protein, and grams of protein, potassium, sodium, and niacin. Results suggest that nutrition education programs conducted by registered dietitians at worksites such as police departments can influence long-term eating choices of participants. © 1995 Aspen Publishers, Inc.
