An assessment of homeless families' diet and nutrition.


This article describes an assessment of nutrition of families resident in temporary accommodation. A questionnaire and a 24-hour food diary were completed by the main care provider of each family. The findings demonstrated that adults in temporary accommodation were eating higher proportions of carbohydrates, protein, sugar and fat, and families were eating lower proportions of fruits, vegetables and dairy products than is recommended. Families resident in temporary accommodation were found to have increased difficulties meeting their nutritional needs.
