A Changing Attitude To Eating Habits
Although the UK rate of obesity is below the rate in many other countries across the world, reducing levels of obesity has become an important government initiative. To identify unhealthy eating practices, the government funded a research program entitled Family Food. The survey involved information from thousands of households and restaurants. Data was collected from the year 2007 through 2010.
The final compilations were published in December 2011 by the government’s National Statistics Agency.
Regrettably, many UK residents are indulging in unhealthy eating practices. The increase in sodium intake is also an alarming prospect. The government uses these statistics from the family food survey to create a list of bad eating habits used by UK residents.
