Slide1:  National Food Survey Island of Ireland Report A Presentation Commissioned Jointly By: An Bord Bia Intertrade Ireland FSIP/Invest NI October 2005 By BE/NH S5-063 Slide2:  SECTION 3: Attitude towards Diet and Wellbeing Attitude towards Diet and Wellbeing – Summary I:  Attitude towards Diet and Wellbeing – Summary I ROI residents most convinced about the importance of diet and wellbeing. NI closer to British attitudes. ROI and NI residents much more optimistic about their health – irrespective of their diet versus Britain. In general NI more likely to sit on the fence regarding health/diet. Again, higher incidence of NI consumers giving no opinion (neither agree nor disagree) to all health/wellbeing statements. ROI and Britain more convinced of benefit of healthy eating on their wellbeing. Almost 1 in 4 consider themselves very healthy in NI & ROI, compared to only 1 in 7 in Britain – higher proportion of NI residents unsure. Possible fallout from high publicity surrounding health and obesity in Britain recently. More females and those in the 35-44 age cohort describe their diet as healthy in NI – 1 in 10 of the younger age cohort admit to a fairly unhealthy diet. NI females in particular, claim to be eating more healthily nowadays. Attitude towards Diet and Wellbeing – Summary II:  Demand for healthier food and ‘low fat’ options clearly evident although less prevalent than in ROI. Growing awareness of fat/calorie content of food in ROI and NI, Britain lagging behind. NI residents less likely to try to buy foods that are natural or to limit fast food consumption but they are, paradoxically, more likely to eat 5+ portions of fruit and veg per day. Broadscale support for the impact of diet on lifestyle and mental health. NI residents much more likely to claim diet is mainly vegetarian versus ROI particularly. Poor understanding of food labelling and nutritional claims. 4 in 10 interested in Fair Trade products – same proportion put off due to higher price of same. 1 in 3 NI adults eat 1-2 portions of fruit and vegetables per day. However, 2 in 3 believe they should eat 5-6 per day.
