Thirty field athletes (discus-, hammer-, javelin-throwers and shotputters) were studied. Dietary intake was determined by using the seven-day estimated dietary record. Analysis of the dietary intake indicated that on average, the males (n = 20) consumed adequate amounts of micro-nutrients. The mean intake for the females (n = 10) were adequate for phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin C. Some of the females did not consume adequate amounts of calcium, iron, and magnesium. These dietary deficiencies can be corrected through proper food choices and by consuming a great variety of food. Athletes (especially the females) should be educated on their nutritional needs, good dietary practices, and planning adequate diets for training and performance.
