What can people eat to meet the dietary goals: and how much does it cost?

What can people eat to meet the dietary goals: and how much does it cost? In order to meet the UK dietary goals, changes in the usual diet will need to be made. We analysed the diets of 2340 middle‐aged men and women in three English towns who had completed a 1‐day food record. A majority consumed more fat, more sugar and less carbohydrate and fibre than recommended. Nutrient intakes for those meeting the goals were compared with those who did not meet them. Fewer subjects met a combination of goals, for example, only 7% met all three COMA fat goals. The 28 subjects who met a combination of the goals for total fat/saturated fat/PS ratio/carbohydrate or sugar/fibre (the combined goals group) were compared with a similar number (the average group) from subjects whose nutrient intakes were within the twenty‐fifth and seventy‐fifth percentiles. Nutrient and food intakes were compared. The combined goals group ate, for example, more cereals, wholemeal and brown bread and less white bread than the others. The average daily cost of the food intake for the combined goals group was (excluding alcohol) £2.03 and for the average group £1.86. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Human Nutrition & Dietetics Wiley

Abstract

In order to meet the UK dietary goals, changes in the usual diet will need to be made. We analysed the diets of 2340 middle‐aged men and women in three English towns who had completed a 1‐day food record. A majority consumed more fat, more sugar and less carbohydrate and fibre than recommended. Nutrient intakes for those meeting the goals were compared with those who did not meet them. Fewer subjects met a combination of goals, for example, only 7% met all three COMA fat goals. The 28 subjects who met a combination of the goals for total fat/saturated fat/PS ratio/carbohydrate or sugar/fibre (the combined goals group) were compared with a similar number (the average group) from subjects whose nutrient intakes were within the twenty‐fifth and seventy‐fifth percentiles. Nutrient and food intakes were compared. The combined goals group ate, for example, more cereals, wholemeal and brown bread and less white bread than the others. The average daily cost of the food intake for the combined goals group was (excluding alcohol) £2.03 and for the average group £1.86.
