A nutritional survey was conducted in a sample of one-year-old children in Milan to assess the intake of nutrients. A sample of 164 healthy children from a population of neonates born from January 1989 to October 1989 was investigated. Diet was assessed by the 24-hour recall method. Energy intake was adequate; protein intake was very high (mean 5.09 g/Kg, standard error [S.E.] 0.14). Fat accounted to 30% total calories, saturated fatty acids 14.2%, polyunsaturated 3 %, monounsaturated 10.3. P/S ratio was 0.23. Iron intake was low. Intake of other micronutrientswas satisfactory. Milk was the main source of energy, protein, fat and sugars. Cereals play a large part as a major source of energy, carbohydrates, and protein. Veal and chicken are important sources of protien; fish plays a very small part. Eggs are not widely used. Olive oil is virtually the sole condiment employed, and it is the third-ranking fat source. Analysis of alimentary and nutrient intake picture showed major differences from other pediatric age groups.
