Socio-demographic and health factors associated with the adherence of Australian Dietary guidelines in women aged 68-73 years


Previous research conducted among Australian women indicates that the level of adherence to the Australian Dietary Guidelines (ADG) is low (Mishra, Schoenaker et al. 2015).  For example, among women aged 50-55 years, the adherence to dietary recommendations was 48% for fruit, but for vegetables was just 1.8%.

The aims of this research are to:

1)   determine the prevalence of Australian women aged 68-73 who met ADG 2013 by socio-demographic, body weight, health behaviors

2)   examine the associations between, general health, the presence of chronic conditions (self-report doctor diagnosed   diabetes, depression), and the adherence to ADG2013
