Description:

The Low Income Diet and Nutrition Survey (LIDNS) was commissioned by the Food Standards Agency. It provides strong, nationally representative, evidence on the eating habits, nourishment and nutrition-related health of people on low income. It also assesses the effect of lifestyle and a range of other factors on these things. The aim of the survey is to provide evidence that will contribute to the development of food policy, which in turn will help to reduce health inequalities. Objectives include: - to provide information on food and nutrient intakes - evaluate the extent to which the diets of the low income population vary from expert recommendations - provide physical measurements of health-related factors closely associated with diet, such as height, weight and blood pressure for a representative sample - assess levels of physical activity - provide basic information on smoking and oral health in relation to diet -examine possible relationships between diet and risk of disease in later life
