The Scottish diet is a concern to Food Standards Scotland (FSS), and should be for all of us. In December, we published a report highlighting that there has been little or no progress towards meeting our Scottish Dietary Goals. These Goals (which are based on government advice) have not been met over the past 15-20 years.
Food Standards Scotland (FSS) recognises the challenge of meeting the Scottish Dietary Goals highlighted in the FSS Situation Report, The Scottish Diet: It Needs To Change, and consider European Obesity Day an important event to raise awareness and knowledge about this disease.
Scotland’s food body, Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has appointed top academic, Professor Norval Strachan as its first Chief Scientific Adviser. His appointment to the senior management team brings additional strategic oversight and leadership of FSS’s scientific activities in relation to food safety and diet and nutrition.
