Technical Abstract: Nutrient intakes from a FFQ developed to reflect Southern food preferences by Delta NIRI in collaboration with Tuft's Human Nutrition Research Center were compared with intakes from multiple 24-hr recalls. Three or four 24-hr recalls were administered by trained interviewers, using the USDA multiple pass method, to 28 African American children, ages 11-13. In completing the FFQ, the children reported on foods consumed during the same 30 day time period. Mean daily nutrient intakes were as follows (24 hour recall vs FFQ, respectively): caloric intake, 2020 vs 2377 kcals; total fat, 84 vs 94 g; saturated fat, 28.5 vs 32.3 g; protein, 72.1 vs 71.7 g; folate, 334 vs 305 ug; iron, 14.1 vs 14.4 mg; and calcium, 753 vs 884 mg. Only ascorbic acid intake was statistically different between the methods (87 vs 172 mg). The results suggest that a FFQ specific for regional food preferences can provide similar nutrient data as obtained via multiple 24 hour recalls at the group level. Supported in part by ARS/USDA Project #6251-530000-0020- 00D.
