dc.description.abstract Objetivo Analisar o consumo alimentar, o ambiente socioeconômico, a freqüência de anemia ferropriva e o estado nutricional de pré-escolares. Métodos A população estudada constituiu-se de 89 crianças de 24 a 72 meses de idade, assistidas em creches municipais de Viçosa, MG. Foram avaliados: nível de hemoglobina, peso, estatura, presença de parasitose, consume alimentar dos pré-escolares e o perfil biossocioeconômico de suas famílias. Resultados O estado nutricional do grupo foi considerado satisfatório, e a prevalência de anemia relativamente baixa (11,2%). Condições adequadas de saneamento, nível razoável de escolaridade dos pais, baixo número de filhos e ausência de parasitas envolvidos com a gênese da anemia podem justificar o perfil observado. Não foi observada associação da anemia ferropriva nem com desnutrição nem com parasitose. Conclusão Apesar de alguns fatores biossocioeconômicos apresentarem-se favoráveis ao estado nutricional e à baixa prevalência de anemia, observa-se, entretanto, que a insuficiente renda per capita e a dieta deficiente poderão levar esse grupo de pré-escolares, no futuro, a um pior estado de saúde. Objective To evaluate the dietary intake, the socioeconomic environment, the frequency of iron deficiency anemia, and the preschoolers’ nutritional status. Methods The evaluated population consisted of 89 children aged 24 to 72 months, who were assisted at the public nursery schools in Viçosa, MG, Brazil. Evaluation was performed for hemoglobin level, body weight, stature, parasites’ presence and dietary intake of the children, as well as for their families’ biological and socioeconomic profiles. Results The group’s nutritional status was considered satisfactory, and anemia prevalence was relatively low (11.2%). This profile may be justified by the adequate conditions of sanitation, reasonable level of parents’ schooling, low numbers of children per family, and absence of parasites involved in the anemia genesis. No association was observed between iron-deficiency anemia and malnutrition, neither parasitosis. Conclusion Although some bio-socioeconomic factors showed favorable nutritional state and low anemia prevalence, it was observed, however, that the families’ insufficient income per capita and their deficient diet will probably lead this group of children to a worse health status. en
