Research shows that as Hispanic immigrants spend more time in the United States and/or become more assimilated to the U.S. culture their diet begins to mimic that of a Western diet. A dietary needs assessment was conducted in the target population of low income, first-generation Hispanics in the greater Scranton, PA, area to identify nutrition problems and inform culturally appropriate nutrition intervention development. The PRECEDE-PROCEED model was used to guide the assessment. Interviews with key informants and a focus group as well as demographic and dietary-related questionnaires were completed with the target population to identify health and nutrition needs in the community and factors regarding dietary behaviors. Behavioral and environmental objectives were developed and led to a culturally tailored nutrition intervention. Las investigaciones muestran que a medida que los inmigrantes Hispanos pasan más tiempo en los EE. UU. Se vuelven más asimilados a la cultura y su dieta comienza a imitar la de la dieta occidental. Se llevó a cabo una evaluación dietética en la población Hispana de primera generación, de bajos recursos, la mayoría en el área de Scranton, PA para identificar los problemas de nutrición e informar sobre el desarrollo de una intervención de nutrición culturalmente apropiada. El modelo PRECEDE-PROCEDE fue utilizado para guiar la evaluación. Se realizaron entrevistas con informantes claves y un grupo de enfoque, así como cuestionarios demográficos y relacionados a la dieta con la población blanco para identificar las necesidades de salud y nutrición en la comunidad, así como los factores con relacionados a los hábitos alimenticios. Se desarrollaron objetivos conductuales y ambientales los cuales llevaron a una intervención nutricional culturalmente adaptada.
