Abstract

A cross sectional survey was conducted of American Indian women ages 18 years and older and residing in Minneapolis to assess dietary and physical activity practices. Results indicate a high amount of fat foods and low amount of fruits or vegetables consumed, and little regular physical activity. For adequate dietary intake, barriers included expense, and for physical activity barriers included lack of child care, health problems and safety concerns.
