Hulshof, K.F.A.M. Publication year 1993 Abstract Migration might have considerable implications for nutrition and consequently for health. Because of the higher demands of growth, children are especially vulnerable to changes in nutrition. In order to get an insight into the need for a special nutrition policy for Turkish ad Moroccan children, the dietary habits and food consumption of 8-year-old Turkish and Moroccan children in The Netherlands were assessed. The results showed that the diet of these children was more compatible with the Dutch recommendations for a prudent diet than the diet of Dutch children from a similar socio-economic background. Quite a few of the basic food items Turkish and Moroccan children are accustomed to eat, like rice, cereals, bread, pulses and vegetables, contain valuable nutrients. So, an increased consumption of these items was recommended. The intake of calcium and riboflavin of Turkish and Moroccan children was low and so the use of dairy products--preferably in fermented form like yoghurt--was recommended. This would also enhance the Vitamin D status.
