The purpose of this work is to monitor progress towards the Scottish Dietary Goals (http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/0042/00421385.pdf ), with the exception of salt in adults and sugars in children as these require different methodologies and are measured separately. The revised Goals replaced the Scottish Dietary Targets, which were originally set in 1996.
A full report is available for years 2001 to 2009. Provisional results to 2011 are available in an interim report which will not be finalised until a full update to 2012 is published in December 2014.
Between 2001 and 2009 there was some evidence of progress towards achieving the Scottish Dietary Goal for fruit and vegetables and brown/wholemeal bread, however the incremental increases continued to be very small.
There were small but significant decreases in saturated fat and non-milk extrinsic sugars (NMES) between 2001 and 2009, which were not found in the analysis for 2001-2006. However no change in total fat was observed and population means for saturated fat, total fat and NMES remained considerably higher than the SDTs.
Analysis by deprivation for 2007 to 2009 continued to suggest that the most deprived consume significantly less fruit and vegetables than the least deprived. Consumption of brown/wholemeal bread, breakfast cereals (all types and wholegrain/high fibre only), white fish and oil-rich fish also remain significantly higher in the least deprived compared to the most deprived.
Energy from NMES continued to be significantly lower in the least deprived compared with the most deprived. There continued to be no difference in the consumption of total complex carbohydrates, fat and saturated fat by deprivation.
Where a difference existed between the least and most deprived, there was no evidence to suggest that the gap in intake had decreased compared to previous years.
Analysis by urban/rural classification suggested consumption of fruit and vegetables, brown/wholemeal bread and fresh potatoes was significantly higher in more remote areas.
