1. Teen Case Study
Tina is 16 years old and pregnant. She comes with her mother to see the dietitian at the Special
Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Tina is 4 months pregnant and has
gained 20 pounds since she became pregnant. She was a little heavy before she became pregnant. She
does not smoke, but her mother does.
Tina saw a physician for the first time last week. She has a prescription for prenatal vitamins but has not
filled it yet. Tina says she has not felt sick at all. In fact, her mother reports that Tina is eating more than
usual based on the amount of chips and snack foods they are going through. Tina is home for summer
break, and she cooks for herself while her mother is at work during the day. During the visit, Tina does
not say much. Her mother does most of the talking.
A brief diet history indicates the following:
10 AM: 2 doughnuts
Noon: Hot dog, bologna sandwich, or fried chicken meal
PM snack: More chips or cookies
Cola (usually a couple through the afternoon)
Dinner: Meat or chicken
Snack: Ice cream
