The Three Interacting Factors Associated With Children's Dietary Exposures: Environmental Concentrations, Food Contamination, and Children's Behaviors

Abstract:The dietary contribution to an aggregate exposure assessment is potentially an important pathway of exposure especially for young children. Enviornmental contamination appearing in the child's diet can result from contamination in the food as purchased or due to preparing, serving, handling, and/or eating food in the home. Food contamination while eating is of special concern for children 1-3 years old, since this age group has a high frequency of hand to food, hand to surface, and surface to food interactions. These sources of food contamination may be very important in homes with high surface concentrations of chemical residue which may have resulted from outdoor air, track-in of particles, and/or indoor sources. Results of a study designed to evaluate the sources and amount of dietary lead exposure for low socioeconomic status children living in lead contaminated homes in the Newark, New Jersey area will be presented.
