Sammanfattning

Dietary related diseases have increased alongside with an increase in body weight in young people during the last decades, and so have also socioeconomic inequalities within youth health. Fruits and vegetables are of great importance for health and contribute with important vitamins, dietary fibre and antioxidants. Thus, people over 10 years of age in Sweden are recommended to eat at least 500 grams of fruits and vegetables per day. Objective: The aim was to compare reported fruit and vegetable intake of adolescents living in a Swedish multicultural area characterized with low socioeconomic status (SES), to the intake of adolescents in a national sample. Methodology: Dietary intake was assessed with food frequency questionnaires among adolescents in 7th grade, mean age 13 years old, (n=118) living in a Swedish multicultural area characterized with low SES, as well as among a national sample of adolescents (n=2292) in the same age. Dietary information was collected in 2014. Results: Adolescents living in the multicultural area had higher frequencies of fruit intake than the national sample (p<0.001). Differences were also seen in number of adolescents who had a daily consumption of fruits (p<0.001), where the multicultural sample had a higher proportion of daily consumers (44 %) than the national sample (25 %). No difference was seen between the groups in frequency of vegetable intake, and neither in daily consumptions of vegetables, where 41 % in the multicultural sample and 38 % in the national sample had a daily consumption respectively. Conclusion: Adolescents living in a Swedish multicultural area characterized with low SES had higher intakes of fruit than adolescents in general. However, intakes of fruits and vegetables need improvement among all groups of Swedish adolescents since not even half of the studied populations had a daily consumption.
