Resumen

PEREIRA G, Luz Marina. Level of satisfaction of energy and macronutrients requirements in the usual intake of kids in rural areas of the ecuadorian highlands. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.1, pp.24-31. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182016000100004.

This study, conducted among students from rural areas of Pujilí Canton, Cotopaxi Province, aged 8 to 15 years, allowed to determine: 1) The individual energy requirements by levels of physical activity; 2) the levels of energy and macronutrient sufficiency and balance of diet seen in the light of International standards. It was found that more than 70 % of schoolchildren do not meet the suggested range by the Joint Expert (World Health Organization / Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations/ United Nations University) for energy and fat intakes, but that percentage is less than 40 % for proteins and carbohydrates. Also, the results indicate that the percentage contribution from usual macronutrient intake of schoolchildren to their estimated energy intake reach respective goal requirements established.

Palabras clave : Usual intake; energy requirements; macronutrients; diet balance; rural schools.
