The aim of this study was evaluating demographic indices respecting dietary intake of the most essential nutrients in female adolescent students.

Nutrient intake was evaluated by a qualitative food frequency questionnaire. The gathered data was analyzed by descriptive statistics, ANOVA test and Pearson correlation coefficients.

Results: Weekly consumption frequency of high fat foods was significantly higher in students with unemployed than employed mothers (P=0.026). Weekly consumption frequency of high calorie and low nutrient foods was significantly high in students having possessory house than lessee students (P= 0.029). There was a negative significant association between the number of family members with dairy consumption frequency of high calcium (r= 0. 19, P= 0.013) and high protein (r= 0.241, P=0.002) foods.
