Teens eating less fatty foods

16th February 2012

A survey of 750,000 teenagers in England has revealed that they are eating less fatty food and more vegetables than previous generations but some young people are skipping meals to lose weight.

The data, acquired over a period of 30 years, has been collated by the Schools Health Education Unit. Between 2000 and 2010, the proportion eating crisps on most days halved, with a similar drop for sweets suggesting that messages about healthy eating are getting through to young people.
