Cadernos de Saúde Pública
This study aims to estimate an adult-equivalent scale for calorie requirements and to determine the differences between adult-equivalent and per capita measurements of calorie availability in the Brazilian population.

The calorie requirement for a reference adult individual was based on the mean requirements for adult males and females (2,550kcal/day). The conversion factors were defined as the ratios between the caloriedoi:10.1590/s0102-311x2010001100020 pmid:21180992 fatcat:wgmnlscggjdefglt7sps5ynl4m
