    ABSTRACT: Resumo Introdução: O consumo adequado de fru-tas, legumes e verduras é considerado um importante fator na redução da incidência de doenças cardiovasculares e determina-dos tipos de câncer. Objetivo: Estimar a prevalência do consumo adequado de fru-tas, legumes e verduras e fatores associados. Métodos: Estudo transversal com amostra probabilística de adultos (N = 1.890), resi-dentes em domicílios com linhas telefônicas fixas em Florianópolis, 2005. O desfecho foi o consumo adequado de frutas, legumes e verduras, definido pela frequência diária de cinco ou mais vezes de consumo destes alimentos. Os resultados das análises mul-tivariáveis para associação entre consumo adequado e variáveis independentes fo-ram expressos como razão de prevalência. Resultados: A prevalência do consumo adequado de frutas, legumes e verduras foi de 21,9% (25,0% mulheres e 18,7% homens). Entre as mulheres, maiores prevalências de consumo adequado foram associadas ao aumento da faixa etária, ao fato de não trabalhar (RP = 1,5; IC 95%: 1,1; 2,0), ter estado de saúde bom ou excelente (RP = 1,4; IC 95%: 1,0; 1,8) e ao não tabagismo (RP = 1,3; IC 95%: 1,0; 1,9). Entre os homens, maior prevalência de consumo adequado foi observada para os que relataram ser casados (RP = 1,9; IC 95%: 1,2; 3,0) e não ter excesso de peso (RP = 1,9; IC 95%: 1,3; 2,7). Em ambos os sexos o consumo adequado apresentou associação com atividade física no lazer (mulheres RP = 1,5; IC 95%: 1,2; 1,9; homens RP = 1,8; IC 95%: 1,1; 2,8).

    ABSTRACT: To analyze the association between leisure-time physical inactivity and sociodemographic factors and risk or protection factors for chronic noncommunicable diseases among adults. Cross-sectional study comprising adults aged 18 years and older (n = 1,996). Data was obtained from the Surveillance System for Risk Factors for Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases (CNCDs), a random-digit-dialed telephone survey carried out in the city of Florianópolis, southern Brazil, in 2005. There were studied sociodemographic, and behavioral protective and risk factors. Results of the multivariate analysis of the association between leisure-time physical inactivity and independent variables were expressed as prevalence ratios. The prevalence of leisure-time physical inactivity was 54.6% (47.3% among men, 61.4% among women). After adjustment, among men, higher physical inactivity was positively associated with older age, lower schooling, and inversely associated with working status; and lower physical inactivity was associated with alcohol abuse, regardless of age, schooling, and work status. Among women, higher leisure-time physical inactivity was positively associated with schooling (less than 12 years of education) and working status. The analyses adjusted for schooling and work status showed higher physical inactivity among those women reporting consuming fruits and vegetables less than five times a day and whole milk. Factors associated with leisure-time physical inactivity were different among men and women. Among women, physical inactivity was associated to risk factors for chronic diseases, especially eating habits. Among men, physical inactivity was associated to sociodemographic factors.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of preterm birth in the State of Santa Catarina, Brazil, and identify associated factors. Data were obtained from the SINASC database (Information System on Live Births). The chi-squared test and Wald linear trend test between the dependent variable (prematurity) and the covariates were applied. Logistic regression was performed to evaluate the association between factors. In 2005, the preterm birth rate was 6.1% (95% CI: 5.9-6.2). Odds of prematurity were higher among mothers under 20 and over 40 years old, those with fewer prenatal consultations, and those undergoing cesarean sections. Prevalence of prematurity in Santa Catarina appears to be increasing. This scenario suggests the need to encourage prenatal care and discourage cesarean deliveries in order to decrease the prematurity rate. More studies using the existing databases could help identify their shortcomings and improve the quality of the data.

    ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: This study describes the food profile of healthy individuals in their natural environment, analyzing the energy and macronutrient ingestion during meals and snacks and their circadian distribution. METHODS: Seventeen volunteers, professors and administrative technicians of an educational institution in Florianópolis, Brazil, with an average age of 46.71 (±2.2) years, and average body mass index of 24.93 (±0.9) kg/m2, registered the type and quantity of food and drink consumed during seven consecutive days, specifying the type of preparation, the eating event (meal or snack), the hour of the day and the day of the week. RESULTS: On average, they consumed 2.7 meals and 3.2 snacks every day. The snacks differed from the meals in both the size and proportion of the macronutrients and in the total energy value. The meals provided about three times more calories than the snacks and were mostly composed of proteins and lipids, whilst the snacks were mostly carbohydrate. The time of day also exerted an influence on consumption. CONCLUSION: In the period from 12 hours to 15 hours 59min, the consumption was significantly greater than during the rest of the day. There was no difference in total caloric consumption between weekends and weekdays.
