Family Food: A Report on the 2008 Family Food Module of the Living Costs and Food Survey
- Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
Family Food is the latest in a series of annual reports from Defra on food and drink purchases by households in the United Kingdom. It is bases on data collected in the Expenditure and Food Survey which runs continuously throughout the year.
The survey is a voluntary survey of private households. Each household member over the age of seven keeps a diary of all their expenditure over a two week period. The diaries record expenditure and quantities of purchase of food and drink rather than consumption. Items of food and drink are defined as either household or eating out. The survey also collected information on the demographics of the household.
The report presents trends in average levels of food purchases by type of food and demographic characteristics and converts these into average energy and nutrient intakes.
