Abstract

Food choices of a sample of 45 volunteers were examined for a dietary study in the Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia [date not given]. From this information we identified food sources of n-3 PUFA which would be suitable to recommend to this group, devised a set of practical guidelines for them to use and developed sample menu plans based on the eating patterns of the subjects. These approaches display the ways and means by which dietitians may advise individuals on how to make changes to their diets to improve n-3 PUFA intakes.
