ABSTRACT:
University students’ food consumption patterns, characterized mainly by an insufficient intake of energy, minerals (for calcium and copper less than 50 per cent of the recommended dietary allowance) and water-soluble vitamins, an appropriate intake of fat-soluble vitamins (A and E), but at the same time an excessive intake of sodium, are typical of and frequently found not only among young people, but also among other groups of the Polish population. The findings of this study confirm the necessity of taking actions aimed at changing young people’s nutritional habits.
