The purpose of the study detailed in this article was to identify nutritional excesses and deficiencies of selected dietary nutrients for a sample of low-income African American mothers and their daughters. Anthropometrics, physical activity questionnaires, food frequency questionnaires, and 24-hour food recalls were collected from a sample of 108 African American mothers and daughters (n = 42 and n = 66, respectively). Results revealed information regarding nutritional deficiencies and excesses that may be useful for modifying nutrition education and services offered through nutrition assistance programs designed for people earning low incomes and receiving financial assistance.
