Бүтээлийн товч тайлбар:

A total of 500 Mongolian immigrants participated in this study. The participants were grouped into a low acculturation (LA) group and a high acculturation (HA) group. Those who are younger than 30 years and female, have resided in SK for more than 5 years, and have college or a higher level of education were associated as being highly acculturated. Associations of acculturation with dietary and nutrient intakes were adjusted for all demographic factors. The HA group had significantly higher consumption of vegetables and rice, and significantly lower consumption of meat, potato, and flour products, compared to their LA counterparts. It was found that acculturation levels are significantly associated with increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, beans, fish, seaweed, vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate. Total fat intake tended to decrease with acculturation. However, acculturation was also significantly related to increased intake of sodium and decreased consumption of dairy products. 

We recommend nutrition programs to prevent obesity and smoking targeting LA immigrants who commonly smoke and are obese. LA immigrants and subjects followed the ‘Traditional Mongolian’ and ‘Mixed’ patterns maintained unhealthy dietary behaviors such as high intake of meat and flour product.

The findings of this study provide useful information for designing tailored nutrition education programs to prevent diet-related chronic diseases among Mongolian immigrants.
