Description:
Nutrition is recognised today as a major component of health maintenance and disease prevention. For this reason the Health Education Bureau has placed a high priority on nutrition education in the community as a means of improving Irish dietary patterns and food 'consumption practices. The only national level nutrition survey in Ireland was carried out in 1946-48 and up-to-date information in this area is fragmentary. In commissioning this study the Bureau did not attempt to repeat the essentially biological orientation of the earlier survey, but rather to obtain information on current knowledge, beliefs and practices of mothers, adolescents and older people in the area of food and nutrition as a basis for planning specific educational activities. Tn our opinion this study, carried out by the Human Nutrition Unit at Trinity College, Dublin, is a valuable source of information , not only for health educators, but also for services and industries involved in food production, processing and distribution.
