Abstract:

In response to a tasking from the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics ODCSLOG the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine USARIEM has completed the third in a continuing series of nutrition assessments of soldiers subsisting in military dining facilities. The purpose of these studies is to evaluate the impact of nutrition initiatives planned to moderate soldiers sodium, fat and cholesterol intakes and to provide soldiers with low calorie menu selections. In August 1987, the third nutrition assessment was completed using 54 male soldier volunteers from Ft. Devens, Massachusetts, subsisting in Consolidated Dining Facility 2. Nutrient intakes were assessed by comparing average daily nutrient intakes, expressed as group means, with the Office of the Surgeon General OTSG Military Recommended Dietary Allowances MRDA 4025.
