Nutrition of Chukotka Native children.

We estimated nutrient and food intakes of adolescents aged 14 to 17 who inhabit the coastal and tundra zones of the Chukotka Autonomous Region, Russia, and developed approaches to improving their diet. We reassessed the dietary intakes of Native (n = 162) and non-Native (n = 155) adolescents of both sexes. We found that mean energy and nutrient intakes (protein, fat, carbohydrates) among schoolchildren were similar in different ethnic and sex groups. The diet of the subjects studied is high in sugar (18-19% of energy) and has an unfavorable fat composition, with saturated fatty acids (SFAs) contributing 14-15% of energy, and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) contributing 5-6% of energy. Our results demonstrate that the children's diet approaches that of "Western society" to a greater extent than that of adults. A program on nutrition based on the national government project "Children of the North" has been developed at the Institute of Internal Medicine in collaboration with the Chukotka Sanitary and Epidemiology Supervision Services. This program includes the list of food products recommended for children. Some ecological factors and ethnic idiosyncrasies are considered.[1]
