Summary

Re-publication of: National Diet and Nutrition Survey rolling programme: Results from Years 1-4 (combined) for Scotland (2008/09-2011/12).

Note of Corrections

National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) results from Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 (combined) of the rolling programme for 2008 and 2009 to 2011 and 2012 for Scotland were republished on 2 October 2017.

Description: Corrections to data on salt intakes (chapter 7) and disaggregated fruit and vegetable consumption (chapters 5, 8, 9 and 10).

The salt intake data for children and older adults in chapter 7  has been corrected to take account of bias in the laboratory analytical method for sodium.  This correction is in line with the approach used in the 2014 Scotland urinary sodium survey of adults and brings the data in this report onto a comparable basis with the data from that survey.  The correction has resulted in slightly higher estimates of salt intake for the period covered by this report.

Consumption estimates for fruit and vegetables, fruit juice and “5-A-Day” portions, including composite dishes, have been corrected for an error in which food groups which should have been excluded from the 5-A-Day calculation  were mistakenly included.  These were: soft drinks, confectionery, biscuits, cakes, sugar, preserves (including jam) and sweet spreads, savoury snacks and ice cream. The corrected values for Years 1-4 are therefore slightly lower than the values originally published but the overall conclusions on fruit and vegetable consumption are unchanged. Details of the methodology for estimating fruit and vegetable consumption and calculating “5-A-Day” portions can be found in Appendix A.
