ABSTRACT
The nutritional status of mothers and daughters living together in households was analysed in relation to two eating models: moderate (MM) and varied (VM). The study included 97 mother-daughter pairs aged 43.3±6.0 years and 16.0±3.1 years, respectively. The VM mothers in comparison to the MM mothers had greater body mass (by 7.9 kg), which resulted mostly from a higher content of fat tissue (by 4.8 kg). The VM daughters in comparison to the MM daughters were significantly taller (by 3.3 cm), but did not differ in body mass nor body composition. Varied, excessive food consumption was favourable to the fattening of women and faster growing of girls.
