Dietary data have shown that the average energy intake among low-income adult women (1871 ± 317 kcal/day) is less than the nutrient recommendation.

In conclusion, linear programming may be a useful tool to develop healthy and palatable diets at a minimal cost in managing dietary problems among low socioeconomic groups where food expenditure becomes an important restraining factor.
