To validate a body dissatisfaction scale for adolescents. The Portuguese instrument was evaluated for internal consistency using Cronbach's alpha, factor analysis with Varimax rotation, discriminant validity by comparing score means according to nutritional status low weight, normal weight, and at risk of overweight and obesity using the Kruskal-Wallis test.

Concurrent validity was assessed using Spearman's rank correlation coefficient between scores and body mass index, waist-hip ratio and waist circumference. Reproducibility was evaluated using Wilcoxon test, and intraclass correlation coefficient. The translated and back-translated scale showed good agreement with the original one. The translated scale had good internal consistency in all subgroups studied males and females in early and intermediate adolescence and was able to discriminate adolescents according to their nutritional status.

In the concurrent analysis, all three measures were correlated, except for males in early adolescence. Its reproducibility was ascertained. It is recommended for the evaluation of the attitudinal component of body image in adolescents. Mexicano , Mexican-American or Chicano?

Background It has been recognized that the availability of foods in the home are important to nutritional health, and may influence the dietary behavior of children, adolescents, and adults. It is therefore important to understand food choices in the context of the household setting.

Considering their importance, the measurement of household food resources becomes critical. Because most studies use a single point of data collection to determine the types of foods that are present in the home, which can miss the change in availability within a month and when resources are not available, the primary objective of this pilot study was to examine the feasibility and value of conducting weekly in-home assessments of household food resources over the course of one month among low-income Mexicano families in Texas colonias.

Methods We conducted five in-home household food inventories over a thirty-day period in a small convenience sample; determined the frequency that food items were present in the participating households; and compared a one-time measurement with multiple measurements.

After the development and pre-testing of the item culturally and linguistically- appropriate household food inventory instrument that used direct observation to determine the presence and amount of food and beverage items in the home refrigerator, freezer, pantry, elsewhere , two trained promotoras recruited a convenience sample of 6 households; administered a baseline questionnaire personal info, shopping habits, and food security ; conducted 5 in-home assessments 7-day interval over a day period; and documented grocery shopping and other food-related activities within the previous week of each in-home assessment.
