The Profile of nutritional status of children and adolescents presents new analysis on data from the 1995 National Nutrition Survey. This preparatory analysis calculated baseline statistics that may be compared with new results from the 2007 Kids Eat, Kids Play survey. This report shows compiled 1995 data based on recommendations made in the 2005 Nutrient Reference Values. This report will be relevant anyone interested in children's nutrition at the population level, policy makers and researchers.
This report provides a summary of existing food and nutrition data relating to children and adolescents, based on the dietary guidelines for children and adolescents in Australia (Box 1; NHMRC 2003) and incorporating recommendations from the new nutrient reference values (NHMRC 2006). It brings together the most recent national nutrition-related data for children and adolescents, and in doing so creates a baseline from which to assess the outcomes of the Kids Eat, Kids Play (KEKP) survey which, at time of writing, were due for release in December 2007.
