Family Food 2014 presents the results from the 2014 Family Food module of the Living Costs and Food Survey, covering household shopping and eating habits. Around 6,000 households in the UK are surveyed annually. Households record their expenditure on, and purchased quantities of, food and drink both for the household and that consumed outside the home. Nutrient intakes are derived from the purchase data.

Key Points
  • In 2014 average household expenditure on all food and drink was 41.97 per person per week. Taking inflation into account, this was 2.8 per cent less than 2013 and 3.5 per cent less than 2011
  • In the UK an average 11.1 per cent of all household spend went on food in 2014. For the lowest 20 per cent of households by equivalised income it was 15.7 per cent.
  • Purchases of various household foods are on clear short term downward trends since 2011, including carcase meat and meat products, potatoes, fruit and bread. Eggs are on a short term upwards trend since 2011.
  • The amount of food eaten out has been declining since 2001, with the largest decreases since 2011 in fresh and processed fruit, biscuits and chocolate, yoghurt and fromage frais, confectionary and alcoholic drinks.
  • Total energy intake from all food and drink is on a long term downward trend.
  • All vitamin and mineral intakes except potassium reached at least 100 per cent of the recommended minimum Reference Nutrient Intake, where one is set.
  • The average intake of sodium is on a downward trend but was still 76 per cent above the recommended maximum Reference Nutrient Intake of 2.4 grams per day in 2014.

Food is necessary for life and essential for good health. The agricultural industry, which produces much of our food, influences our landscape and rural areas. The food manufacturing industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK. Taken as a whole, the agri-food sector contributes £97bn to the economy and employs 3.8 million people. Food retail and food services of all types are part of everyday life: from farmers’ markets to 24 hour superstores, from fish and chip shops to pubs and restaurants. Food impacts our personal lives on a daily basis. Our spending habits and eating patterns reflect our individual lifestyles and social and economic situations, and have implications for public health and social policy.

Family Food looks specifically at the domestic, or household aspect. It provides detailed statistics on food and drink purchases, expenditure and the derived nutrient content of those purchases from a large household survey covering the United Kingdom. Family Food and its predecessors have been running since the 1940s and the data produced have been used to support and inform Government policy, as well as academic research, for diverse purposes. From monitoring the effects of wartime and post-war rationing to assessing consumer response to recent food price inflation, Family Food data provides insights into the way we live through the food we buy.

Family Food is the source of detailed statistical information on purchased quantities, expenditure and nutrient intakes derived from both household and eating out food and drink.

Data is collected for a sample of households in the United Kingdom using self-reported diaries of all purchases, including food eaten out, over a two week period. Where possible quantities are recorded in the diaries but otherwise estimated. Energy and nutrient intakes are calculated using standard nutrient composition data for each of some 500 types of food.

Current estimates are based on data collected in the Family Food Module of the Living Costs and Food Survey and on adjusted data collected in the National Food Survey. Historical estimates from 1940 to 2000 are based on data from the National Food Survey

Family Food is the source of detailed statistical information on purchased quantities, expenditure and nutrient intakes derived from both household and eating out food and drink.

Data is collected for a sample of households in the United Kingdom using self-reported diaries of all purchases, including food eaten out, over a two week period. Where possible quantities are recorded in the diaries but otherwise estimated. Energy and nutrient intakes are calculated using standard nutrient composition data for each of some 500 types of food.

Current estimates are based on data collected in the Family Food Module of the Living Costs and Food Survey and on adjusted data collected in the National Food Survey. Historical estimates from 1940 to 2000 are based on data from the National Food Survey

Key Points:

  • There was a statistically significant reduction in energy intake from household food and drink in 2011 which is consistent with the longer term decline in energy intake from food and drink since the mid 1960s. Although energy intake reduced in 2011 the percentage of food and drink energy (excluding alcohol) derived from NMES and saturated fatty acids were hardly changed compared to 2010. Intake of sodium is on a downward trend.
  • Households in income decile 2 (second lowest group) derived 1891 Kcals per person per day from household food in 2011, 15 per cent less than in 2007 and now similar to households in income decile 1 (lowest group). Previously each year from 2001-02 to 2010 this group had an energy intake from household food higher than the average UK household.
  • For households in income deciles 1 and 2 (the lowest 20 per cent) 16.6 per cent of spend went on household food in 2011, 1.4 percentage points above the 2007 level.
  • Having peaked in 2006 and 2007 purchases of fruit and vegetable were 10 per cent lower in 2011 than 2007 for UK households, 22 per cent lower for households in income decile 2 (second lowest group), and 15 per cent lower for households in income decile 1 (lowest group)
