The Survey of Diet Among Children in Scotland, 2010, continued the work of the Survey of Sugar Intake among Children in Scotland, 2006. The primary aim of the study was to determine the intake of non-milk extrinsic sugars (NMES), total fat and saturated fatty acids and other nutrients and foods and drinks in a nationally representative sample of children aged 3-16 years living in Scotland in 2010.
The survey further aimed to investigate the purchasing behaviours of children around the school day using a newly designed Food Purchasing Module (FPM). The research was carried out by the University of Aberdeen, ScotCen Social Research, and the University of Hertfordshire.
Data is available in SPSS (*.sav), STATA (*.dta), and Tab-delimited text (*.tab) formats.
