Nutritional survey was carried out for aged individuals who lived singly in Akishima City and received community meal service twice a week, and the results were compared with those of the individuals, who did not receive the meal service. Their food habits were correlated with their daily activities. Thus, the more active life they spent, the better food habits they had.Individuals, who received meal service, spent rather passive life and their food habits were poor and monotonous. On their nutrients intake, the estimated mean intake of protein was 41g/day and that of iron was 5.5 mg/day. These were significantly lower than those in the individuals who did not receivethe meal service (p< 0.01).With respect to service meals offered, these meals contained rich nutrients compared with the requirements of them. However, the evaluation of present meal service program revealed that twice service a week did not serve to improve their food habits, or to correct their nutrients intake.
