Food and you – part 2
The UK Food Standards Agency has now issued the detailed tables behind its 4th biennial Food & You Survey, based on interviews with 3,118 adults in 2016. They show what I think is best summarised as less good and less bad than you might expect.
The biggest changes appear to be an increase in eggs 3 or more times a week from 31% in 2012 to 35% in 2016 and a drop in beef, lamb or pork 3 or more times a week from 26% in 2012 to 18% in 2016.
There have been relatively minor changes in the consumption of fruit, vegetables or fish.
I do hope the next survey includes beverages as well.
