Abstract

Objective: The aim of the study was to know dietary habits and nutritional knowledge of women nursing students.

Material and methods: Participants of the study were a random sample composed of 200 female students of health sciences. This sample represented the 95% of total, and the 5% was excluded (men and chronic illness). We studied three-day record study, including a weekend. At the same time, we measured the weight, the height, diameter of hip and diameter of waist.

Results: The energy intake was 1720 Kcal/day, and as in similar studies the % energy from fat and proteins was higher than % energy from carbohydrates. Statured fatty acid intake was statistically significant higher than recommendations. Body mass index (BMI) was normal in 81.1% of women (21.3 Kg/m2). The rest was 10% underweight and 8.9% had overweight/obesity.

Conclusions: This information provided by this study, should be used in order to improve Nutritional studies in nursing schools.
