Abstract

Background and objectives: Given the importance of determining food consumption patterns for developing policies and interventionist nutrition programs, the current study aimed to determine the food consumption patterns of rural households in villages of Felard district in Lordegan in 1394.

The data collection instruments included demographic characteristics and food consumption pattern questionnaires. The data were described using SPSS software package.

Results: The results showed that the main food consumption of rural households was bread and grain. Only 17% of the subjects enjoyed a daily intake of vegetables. There were also reports of 38% fruits and 13% milk consumption in the daily intake. 32/5% of participants consumed yogurt and buttermilk on a daily basis. Only 18% of participants used daily whole grains. The main snacksin the family food basket were ice-cream, biscuits, industrial fruit-juices, chocolate and candies, cookies and chips, respectively.
