Abstract

This study examines the effects of dietary information on women's whole and low-fat milk intakes. The sample is 1928 female meal planners aged 20 years or over who provided information on their milk intake for 2 days in the 1994-96 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals and who completed the 1994-96 Diet and Health Knowledge Survey in the follow-up interview. The nested Tobit model was used to handle the sequentially censored data. Women's dietary information contributed to reduced whole milk consumption and increased low-fat milk consumption indicating different effects on whole milk and low-fat milk consumption.
