To date, it is the first report about energy and nutrient intakes in these hosted children.

Mean energy intake was ranged from 8.0 to 9.0 MJ day-1 for girls aged from 4 to 8, and for boys aged from 9 and 13, respectively. The highest value of the carbohydrate and fat intakes were for Saharawi boys aged from 9 to 13, but the highest value of protein intake were Saharawi girls aged from 9 to 13. The PUFA/SFA ratio is lower than 0.5 and the (PUFA+MUFA)/SFA values are <2 for studied Saharawi children. Five (vitamin D and E, potassium, calcium and iodine) out of twenty-three micronutrients intakes below than the recommended values, being the low value of iodine an advantage for these children due to that suffer goitre for excessive intake of iodine in their refugee camps.
