Resumen

CAICHAC H, Astrid et al. Food and nutrition intervention for miners with cardiovascular risk factors, based on formative research. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2013, vol.40, n.4, pp.336-342. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182013000400002.

We designed and implemented an intervention to improve the diet of 94 miners with cardiovascular risk of a mining company. The diagnosis included a qualitative study of the desires, motivations and barriers that workers have to lead a healthy life, a survey of food consumption and checking the institutional food service. Anthropometric and biochemical data were provided by the company. Based on the results, the intervention included improving the supply of healthy foods and conducting the communication campaign "Minero 100% Filete", workshops and nutritional counseling for them and their families. After 8 months of intervention we found a significant increase in the consumption of fruits and vegetables and a decreased consumption of fried, cured and red meats. There was no significant change in BMI. However, there were significant decreases in systolic blood pressure, blood glucose levels, triglycerides and an increase in HDL cholesterol. Although the program was well received by the workers, it is acknowledged that there are significant adverse factors which merit improvement.

Palabras clave : cardiovascular risks factors; food consumption; formative research; communicational campaign; miners.
