The purpose of this study was to examine consumption of dairy products by suburban adolescents. This was a secondary analysis of data from a questionnaire administered in late fall of 2003. There were 255 adolescents who completed the questionnaire. Data were examined to estimate calcium intake from dairy products.
There was a significant difference in the amount of calcium adolescents consume from cheese, compared to that supplied by milk (t = -8.502, p = .000). Further analyzing by gender, there was a significant difference between boys and girls intake of milk and cheese. No significant difference was found between boys and girls regarding their weekly milk consumption (t = 1.825, p = 0.070). Finally, there was no significant difference between boys’ and girls’ relative percentages of total calcium contributed by milk (t = -1.630, p = 0.105).
