    ABSTRACT: Im Rahmen des bundesweiten Kinder- und Jugendgesundheitssurveys (KiGGS) wurde von Januar bis Dezember 2006 in einem Modul das Ernährungsverhalten von 6- bis 17-Jährigen erfasst. Die Studie mit dem Namen EsKiMo (Ernährungsstudie als KiGGS-Modul) wurde vom Robert Koch-Institut (RKI) gemeinsam mit der Universität Paderborn, Fachgruppe Ernährung und Verbraucherbildung, durchgeführt und vom Bundesministerium für Ernährung, Lebensmittel und Verbraucherschutz finanziert. Die Eltern der teilnehmenden Kinder unter 12 Jahren wurden gebeten, gemeinsam mit ihrem Kind ein 3-Tage-Verzehrsprotokoll zu führen. Die älteren Kinder wurden persönlich mit Hilfe von DISHES (Dietary Interview Software for Health Examination Studies) zu ihrer Ernährung in den letzten 4 Wochen befragt. Außerdem sollten sie einen bereits im KiGGS eingesetzten Ernährungsfragebogen (Food Frequency Questionnaire) ein zweites Mal ausfüllen. Zusätzlich kam bei allen Teilnehmern ein Kurzfragebogen zum Einsatz, in dem unter anderem soziodemographische Daten, Aspekte der Freizeitgestaltung, Supplementeinnahme, Verpflegung in der Schule sowie Körpergröße und -gewicht erhoben wurden. Die Studie wird aktuelle, repräsentative Daten zur Ernährung von Kindern und Jugendlichen in Deutschland liefern. Diese werden sowohl hinsichtlich der Lebensmittelverzehrsmengen als auch Nährstoffversorgung ausgewertet. Durch die Verbindung der Ernährungsdaten mit den im KiGGS erhobenen Gesundheitsdaten sind außerdem umfangreiche Analysen zum Zusammenhang zwischen Ernährung und Gesundheit möglich. Schlüsselwörter Gesundheitssurvey - Kinder - Jugendliche - Ernährungsepidemiologie - Ernährungserhebungsmethoden In a module of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS), the dietary behaviour of 6–17-year-olds was assessed from January to December 2006. The study, named EsKiMo (Eating Study as a KiGGS Module), was performed by the Robert Koch Institute together with the division of nutrition and consumer education at the University of Paderborn. It was funded by the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection. Parents of participants younger than 12 years were asked to conduct a 3-day dietary record. Participants of 12 years and older were personally interviewed about their eating behaviour during the last four weeks using DISHES (Dietary Interview Software for Health Examination Studies). In addition, they were asked to fill in the KiGGS food frequency questionnaire a second time. Furthermore, all participants were asked about their socio-demographic background, leisure time activities, supplement use, meals at school, body weight and height. The study will provide up-to-date, representative data on the nutrition of children and adolescents in Germany. The analyses will include the amounts of foods and food groups consumed as well as the nutrient intake. By connecting these nutrition data with other health data from KiGGS, comprehensive analyses of relationships between nutrition and health are possible.

    ABSTRACT: From January to December 2006, the dietary behaviour of children and adolescents at the age of 6-17 is assessed in a module which is part of KiGGS (National Health Interview and Examination Survey for children and adolescents). The study called EsKiMo (Eating study as a KiGGS Module) is conducted by the Robert Koch-Institute together with the University of Paderborn, Nutrition and Consumer Education, and financed by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection. The parents of children under 12 years are asked to conduct a 3-day dietary record. Children over 12 years are personally interviewed about their food intake during the last 4 weeks. Interviews are based on DISHES (Dietary Interview Software for Health Examination Studies). The interviewed are also asked to complete a food frequency questionnaire once again which was already used in the KiGGS main study. All 2 400 participants, furthermore, are asked to complete a short questionnaire asking for sociodemographic information, leisure time activities, school meal supply, body size and weight. The study will provide actual representative data of the nutrition situation of children and adolescents in Germany. The data will be evaluated with regard to quantities of specific foods and food categories consumed and, after combination with the German food and nutrient database, with regard to nutrient intake. The combination of these dietary data and the KiGGS health data will allow comprehensive analyses of the relationship between nutrition and health.

    ABSTRACT: Dietary intake of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) was analysed, stratified by sex and age groups, using data from the German Nutrition Survey 1998. The median intake of both fatty acids combined (EPA and DHA) was 141 mg per day among women and 186 mg among men. In all age groups, women consumed less EPA and DHA than men, partly because of lower total intake. The lowest median intake was observed among women aged 18-24 years (84 mg) and the highest median intake among men aged 45-54 years (217 mg). The main sources of these fatty acids are fish (68%), eggs (12%), poultry (7%), meat and sausages (7%). The remaining 6% of EPA and DHA is supplied by bakery products.

    ABSTRACT: In the second German National Nutrition Survey (NVS II), different methods are used to learn about the nutritional behaviour of 20000 subjects between 14 and 80 years of age. Energy and nutrient intake as well as meal structures and meal patterns are assessed by dietary history interviews using DISHES 05 and 24-h recalls via EPIC-SOFT. Both programmes had to be adapted to the specific objectives and questions of NVSII. Adaptations included different aspects such as, e.g., food choice, places of consumption, quantification methods and packaging. In addition, a computer-assisted personal interview and a questionnaire are used to determine other aspects of the consumption and general health behaviour and sociodemographic data. Furthermore, body weight, body height and some other anthropometric measurements are assessed to calculate body mass index and waist-to-hip-ratio of the participants. A dietary weighing record is also included. It is to provide an important data base to evaluate food-related risks to health. Before the actual study, practicability and completeness of the individual methods were verified in a pretest. The methodical concept underlying NVS II is in accordance with EFCOSUM standards.

    ABSTRACT: A blood cholesterol-lowering margarine containing plant sterolesters was the first functional food placed on the European food market pursuant to the regulation (EC) 258/97. In the following years nine further applicants submitted the request to add plant sterol compounds to dairy products, cheeses, bakery products, sausages, plant oils and other products. The European Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) declared a precautionary intake limit of 3 g plant sterols per d by multiple dietary sources. Using the consumption data of the German National Food Consumption Study, carried out from 1985 to 1988 with 23 209 participants, we hypothetically added 0.3-2 g plant sterols to usual daily servings of ten different food products, selected from the novel food applications. We calculated the prospective plant sterol intake regarding each kind of enriched food and by stepwise accumulation of different functional foods in three enrichment scenarios. Within our enrichment context we find a phytosterol intake satiation, if multiple plant sterol-enriched foods are eaten. An enrichment amount of 2 g plant sterols per proposed food serving size results in an intake maximum of 13 g/d.
